Climate change, one of the largest environmental threats today, is among the issues that can’t be solved on a small scale. It needs to be combated collectively, which requires international negotiations and agreements. Climate change is not only a political, but also an economic agenda, and it is not solely owned by the politicians. How to reach a consensus with such a heterogeneous group of various actors? The Master’s Degree Programme in Leadership for Change had the pleasure of hosting a guest lecture titled ‘After Paris – Communicating Climate Policy in the EU’ with Anna-Kaisa Itkonen, the European Commission Spokesperson for Climate Action and Energy.
As part of their studies, first year students in the Leadership for Change Master’s Programme are writing short memos on various social theories. We are publishing some of the memos here, on the LFC blog. This set of memos deals with practice theories, a topic on which Elina Närvänen gave a lecture to the students.
People are increasingly interested in sustainability and worried about the effects of climate change. Funding and investing in sustainable projects is one of the solutions on the road towards a more sustainable future. The role of finance in solving sustainability challenges was discussed by Eila Kreivi from the European Investment Bank at her LFC lecture at Tampere University.
Welcome to the book launch event of Leading Change in a Complex World: Transdisciplinary Perspectives on 13 February at 15 o’clock, Tampere University, PinniA1081 (Kanslerinrinne 1).
