Climate Change and Energy Supply: Policy Perspectives from Europe, Asia and Australia

Climate Change and Energy Supply: Policy Perspectives from Europe, Asia and Australia

Tuesday, 18 November 2014 - 6:30pm to 7:00pm

A comprehensive global solution is required for combating climate change. The growing demand for energy and the need for new ways to produce and use energy are key challenges to face the consequences of climate change. With the EU and Asia comprising a large part of the world’s population from both developed and developing countries, this public forum brings together experts from these socially and politically diverse regions. 

This event is presented by the Australian Institute of International Affairs (AIIA) and the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS) in collaboration with the University of Melbourne EU Centre on Shared Complex Challenges, the Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute and the Australian-German College of Climate & Energy Transitions. 

Hear from distinguished speakers from Europe, Asia and Australia about policy alternatives to meet the challenges of climate change and future energy supply.
