“Three years of the Paris Agreement – where are we?” in debate

“Three years of the Paris Agreement – where are we?” is the theme of the next debate promoted by the CECS think tank, Communitas. The discussion will take place on December 12, 2018.

The event will be held at the Engineering Auditorium II of the University of Minho (Campus de Gualtar) at 3:00 p.m., and will be attended by João Camargo, co-author of the book Portugal em chamas – como resgatar a floresta, activist of the Climáximo movement and researcher on climate change at ICS at the University of Lisbon, Cláudia Pascoal, executive vice-director of the Institute for Science and Innovation for Bio-sustainability (IB-S) of the University of Minho, and Jorge Leandro Rosa, integrated researcher at the Institute of Philosophy of the University of Porto. The moderation will be made by Anabela Carvalho, a CECS researcher.

Reached on December 12, 2015, the so-called Paris Agreement is a landmark in combat climate change. Its central objective is to strengthen the global response to this threat by limiting a global temperature rise this century to a value well below 2 degrees Celsius and proposing to continue efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1,5 degrees Celsius.

Within the spirit of openness of the knowledge produced at the university to the community of this think tank and as usual, this debate will also have an online expression on the platform page and will welcome opinions and comments between December 6 and 19.

Entrance is free and open to the entire community.
