The Planet under Pressure World Conference - Call for parallel sessions
Deadline for submission of sessions: 18 March 2011.
The Scientific Organizing Committee invites proposals for parallel sessions to the conference, which is jointly organized by the four world research programs WCRP, IGBP, IHDP, DIVERSITAS and the joint program ESSP.
The four-day conference will follow this flow:
Day 1: State of the planet: the latest knowledge about the pressures on the planet
Day 2: Options and opportunities: exchanging knowledge about ways of reducing the pressures on the planet, promoting transformative changes for a sustainable future and adapting to changes in the global system
Day 3: Challenges to progress: clarifying what is preventing or slowing humanity from implementing potential solutions
Day 4: Ways ahead: a vision for 2050 and beyond, and exploring new partnerships and pathways towards global sustainability
A. Meeting global needs: food, energy, water and other ecosystem services
B. Transforming our way of living: development pathways under global environmental change
C. Governing across scales: innovative stewardship of the Earth system
"Given the mounting evidence of the sheer scale of global changes we are witnessing, the scientific community has a responsibility to urge public officials, citizens, and private firms in all countries to focus on the need for major policy changes to avoid major irreparable damage to our planet. I sincerely hope the 2012 conference will make a significant contribution to placing sustainability on everyone's agenda." Elinor Ostrom, 2009 Nobel Laureate Economics, Chief Scientific Advisor to the Planet Under Pressure conference
On behalf of the Planet Under Pressure co-chairs, Lidia Brito and Mark Stafford Smith.
Planet Under Pressure is organised by:
IGBP - International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme
IHDP - International Human Dimensions Programme
WCRP - World Climate Research Programme
with their joint program
