Misum Annual Forum 2021: 'Responding to climate change - challenges and possible solutions'
2021 is proving to be a crucial year for the international community to accelerate science-based decision-making in response to tackling climate change. With the most recent IPCC report being hailed as a ‘code red for humanity, the upcoming COP26 held in Glasgow in November, and lessons on global crises unravelling from the COVID pandemic, the context for evidenced-based response is acute.
Mistra Center for Sustainable Markets (Misum) is proud to host a vibrant line-up of high-level academics and young researchers working in the areas of sustainability, climate change, finance and economics who will present expert academic insights on climate-focused topics. Complementing the academic talks, a moderated practitioner panel with industry experts from the world of finance and high-emitting industries will provide insights from practice on what the impacts of climate change mean for industry and business.
The conference will be live-streamed, with speakers based around the world and at Misum’s home base of Stockholm School of Economics. Registration is required to watch the event live. Register here (please note that the registration link will not open in Internet Explorer - contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you encounter any registration issues).
This year’s presentations are heavily rooted in discussing existing and emerging scientific research on economics and climate change. Five keynote presentations from influential international scholars and three presentations from young Misum researchers will feature during the sessions. More details will be available soon.
