SYMPOSIUM: Climate Change Symposium 2019
|Climate Change Symposium 2019 : Tackling Climate Change in Western Australia: Ideas for a State Climate Policy
The purpose of the symposium is to inform better discussion of and submissions to the State’s Climate Policy process. The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation published a “Climate Change issues paper” in early September to launch a period of consultation, which closes on 29 November. The date of the symposium enables those interested in making a submission to be better informed on the issues and to discuss them before completing submissions to the Government.
The symposium will be opened by the Chancellor of the UWA, The Honourable Robert French AC. The two plenary sessions feature three authors from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, Global Warming of 1.5C, 2018, and other internationally acclaimed experts on climate change science. Professor Donald DePaolo, Graduate Professor of Geochemistry and Chancellor’s Professor Emeritus at UC Berkeley, will present on "Sustainable carbon emissions: A geologic perspective”
The six breakout sessions address themes pertinent to developing a climate change policy for Western Australia. The registration fee is $100 with discounts at $50.
