Environmental activists and anyone with an interest in environmental law are cordially invited to a weekend seminar organised by FEASTA and WinACC (Winchester Action on Climate Change). The seminar will consider fresh approaches to tackling climate change and how they might be put into action. It will appeal to those who like to hear alternative perspectives, challenge conventional thinking, and explore ideas through discussion with others. Saturday June 29th – Sunday June 30th 2013.
Graham Barnes attended the recent Transforming Finance event in London. Here are some of his recollections.
Small countries without significant vested interests dominating their relationship with others, such as Ireland, have a particular opportunity to contribute positively to the search for a resolution to climate change at an international/global level. In this submission, made on April 30 2013, we therefore urge the Irish government to follow up its recent UNEP study with further consideration of proposals and to explore all possibilities including those proposed in Sharing for Survival. We also urge the government to make use of scenario-based analyses when forming climate change policy.
This talk given by Brian Davey last month in Slovenia describes many of the challenges faced by small peripheral states in the current world economy and provides an overview of solutions put forward by Feasta and its partners.
