IIPP Climate Change, Labour and Innovation Lecture Series 2022
Join us for our series of talks with Professor Damon Silvers focusing on 'Climate Change, Labour and Innovation: How Policymakers Should Think About the Wickedest Problem of All' in discussion with leading experts.
In these lectures, Professor Silvers will draw upon his research into climate policy in the U.S., Germany and France, his experiences working for the U.S. labour movement, in a variety of roles in the U.S. government and as an Observer at the COP26 meeting in Glasgow. The four-part series of lectures will look at the political economy of innovation surrounding the challenge of climate change, and in particular the role of workers and workers organisations in the effort to decarbonise the world’s economy in alignment with scientific assessments that global warming needs to be kept below 1.5 degrees Celsius to ensure that the effects on human civilisation are manageable.
Free events, Q&A to follow. The IIPP Climate Change, Labour and Innovation is convened by Professor Rainer Kattel.
IIPP research addresses how public value is imagined, practised and evaluated to tackle societal challenges to achieve sustainable, inclusive and innovation-led growth.
