Climate Engineering Conference 2017 (CEC17): Critical Global Discussions Berlin, October 9 – 12, 2017

“Climate engineering is an increasingly encountered topic within political, scientific, and cultural discussions of climate change. Building on the success of the first international climate engineering conference in 2014 (CEC14), by organizing CEC17 in October 2017, we strive to continue critical global discussions by bringing together the research, policy, and civic communities to discuss the highly complex and interlinked ethical, social and technical issues related to climate engineering. The conference will provide a thorough and timely update on the latest developments in the field. We seek to facilitate discussions about the future development of research on reflecting sunlight away from Earth and removing greenhouse gases from the atmosphere, within the context of efforts to reduce emissions and adapt to climate change. CEC17 will thereby serve as an opportunity for a diverse audience of scientists, policy-makers, civil society organizations, and members of the public to critically engage with current research and the broader discussions that surround it.”
