Addressing climate change challenges from a multidisplicinary perspective.
This year the 2013 summer school (July 8th, 9th, 10th) entitled “Addressing Climate Change Challenges from a Multidisciplinary Perspective” will be structured similarly to IPCC (International Panel for Climate Change) assessment reports. For this purpose, we have invited researchers that can help us to better understand the biophysical part behind the economics of climate change. The course will have three main sessions/days, each of them focusing in one of the subjects of the IPCC Working Groups: climate science, adaptation and impact and mitigation of climate change. An IPCC-member scientist will be a keynote lecture for each session. After that, top leading invited speakers will cover in more detail the main key issues in the climate change research agenda.
The objective of the summer school is to offer an updated and recent view of the ongoing trends in Climate Change research in an annual basis. The BC3 Summer School is organized in collaboration with the University of the Basque Country (Fundamentos de Análisis Económico I) and is a high quality and excellent summer course gathering leading experts in the field and students from top universities and research centres worldwide.
BC3 has an active roll at UPV/EHU courses since July 2009. In this edition of summer course of the University of the Basque Country, BC3, Basque Centre for Climate Change, co-organize two Summer Schools, BC3-UPV/EHU Summer School on Transformation, Adaptation and Mitigation for a 1.5 degree Global Warming, with UPV/EHU and Summer School on Environment Resistance to Antibiotics; the beginning of an apocalyptic scenario with Euskampus, Neiker Tecnalia and UPV/EHU, this July in Biscay.
This year we run the 10th edition of the BC3-UPV/EHU Summer School on Climate Change that started in July 2010, when the international community was in the search of a successor agreement to the Kyoto Protocol, following a non-binding Copenhagen Accord put forth in 2009. Since then, the Summer School has covered a wide range of topics from an interdisciplinary perspective and has closely followed the international negotiations on climate change. Two years ago, the Summer School focused on the factors behind the paradigm shift in international policymaking, which eventually led to the Paris Agreement. Then, the US government’s decision to back out the agreement led to a “climate of uncertainty” that constituted the main topic discussed in last year’s edition.
