Prague Climate Talks 2019

I v roce 2019 pokračujeme s projektem Prague Climate Talks – platformou pro expertní diskuse na témata spojená se změnami klimatu. Těšit se můžete na několik debat s odborníky a profesionály z relevantních oborů.

Prague Climate Talks je projekt zaměřený na vybudování platformy vhodné pro expertní diskuze o klimatických změnách. Během série debat se spolu setkají odbornící a profesionálové z relevantních oborů se zástupci širší veřejnosti. Diskuze budou probíhat v angličtině a budou tlumočeny do češtiny.

Nadcházející debaty budou zaměřeny na témata:

The future of Czech coal regions (April 2019)

Coal is on its way out across Europe. Countries such as France, Sweden, Portugal, Italy or the Netherlands have already announced their phase-out dates, which will occur during the 2020s. While Czech Republic has not set its date yet, it is certain that the use of coal for electricity generation is going to fade. How can we prepare the traditional coal-mining regions for this transition and ensure that no-one is left behind? What can we learn from other countries, where just transition has already happened? What role do different stakeholders have in this process?

Waste as a driver of climate change: problems and solutions​ (May 2019)

The links between waste and climate change are manifold. Waste piled in landfills produces greenhouse gases (especially methane, which is 25 times stronger than CO2). One third of all the food in the world is wasted and this contributes to 8% of global emissions. In short, waste is an often-overlooked but significant driver of climate change. What innovative solutions are being implemented to tackle this problem? What are the impacts of plastic deposit schemes or plastic bag bans? What are the barriers to efficiently reducing waste?

How will the new European Parliament tackle climate change? (June 2019)

In May 2019, European citizens elected new members of the European Parliament. The year 2019 is crucial for climate politics: member states are finalizing their national energy and climate plans, the EU is debating its 2030 and 2050 targets and the time left to keep global warming below 1,5°C or 2°C is running out. How will the newly elected MEPs tackle the greatest challenge of 21st century?In May 2019, European citizens elected new members of the European Parliament.

Effects of climate change in the Czech Republic: what can we do? (October 2019) 

The effects of advancing climate change are no longer confined to remote locations on the other side of the world. They are visible and palpable here in the Czech Republic. People in countryside as well as the cities are impacted by climate change every year, be it by prolonged heatwaves or extreme droughts. What can we do mitigate this? And how prepared is the Czech Republic to adapt to climate change effects in the years to come?
