Societies and climate change : challenges for education, action and governance

Societies and climate change : challenges for education, action and governance

Summer school is organized by IHEST (Institut des Hautes Etudes pour la Science et la Technologie) from June 30th to July 3rd 2015.

The issue of climate change has evolved in recent years, from a subject of basic research handled by diverse scientific communities, to a hybrid and diffuse subject with multi-faceted stakes. The question now is how we grasp the issue, define its terms and decide how these challenges can be met with action. Climate change, which has led to the emergence of a new discipline, climatology, mobilizes a broad spectrum of disciplines ranging from biophysics to human and social sciences. It shakes the foundations of our economic and social models, and therefore society, and commands the attention of politicians.

The three and a half day seminar will examine this dual challenge of knowledge and action, in the lead-up to the United Nations Conference of the Parties on Climate Change (COP 21).

By comparing approaches and points of view, the speakers and participants at the European Summer School will be asked to shed light on the processes underway, to identify the normatives at work, be they scientific, political, economic or social, to discern the nature of the controversies specific to this major issue, and the nature of the choices confronting politicians, caught between short-term interests and long-term stakes. What does the climate change issue tell us about the dialogue between science and society ? These will be the guiding themes of the seminar.

The deadline for applying is 15 May.
