Webinar: Mitigation Deterrence: An ICRLP Webinar

28. April 2020, online

"In this webinar Nils Markusson, Duncan McLaren, and Rebecca Willis of Lancaster Environment Centre at Lancaster University UK will present results from a project called “Assessing the Mitigation Deterrence effects of Greenhouse Gas Removal technologies”. Mitigation deterrence (MD) is where the pursuit of (for example) greenhouse gas removal (GGR) delays or deters other mitigation options."

Online conference: EGU2020: Sharing Geoscience Online (#shareEGU20)

04. - 08. May 2020, online

"The EGU is officially announcing the cancellation of the physical EGU General Assembly 2020 in Vienna, Austria. Because the Union is committed to minimizing the impact of COVID-19 on scientific research and collaboration, we believe EGU has a responsibility and a duty to ensure these activities continue despite the current, extreme circumstances. We have therefore decided to host EGU2020: Sharing Geoscience Online (#shareEGU20), a week-long series of online activities held during the first week of May that support our community by fostering scientific communication."

Conference: Climate Engineering in Context 2020

06. - 09. October 2020, Berlin / Germany

"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. CECs 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."
