The third edition of the Klimagune Workshop is to be held on Friday, 8th of June, at the Euskalduna Conference Centre in Bilbao, under the heading: “From Euskadi to Rio + 20”. The event will consist of a plenary session with a crosscutting topic "Green Economy" and three roundtables that will focus on Climate Change and Energy, Climate Change and Biodiversity and Climate Change and Critical Resources.
The common denominator underpinning the contributions made to this Workshop is The Green Economy.
The Plenary Session will introduce a Keynote Speaker of considerable international renown,Prof. Jeroen van den Berg.
Klimagune Workshop is a forum for informal discussion on Climate Change, open to all the agents in the Basque Science and Technology Network. The aim of this initiative is to share knowledge, projects and developments in terms of scientific advancements, based on the creation of synergies and possible frameworks for cooperation between the various research groups, organisations and institutions that address this matter. The second edition was held in May 2011 under the heading, “Addressing Climate Change through Adaptation” and was attended by over 100 delegates from the Basque science network.
Following the suggestions made by those attending the first edition of the Klimagune Workshop , a scientific committee has been set up for this year’s Klimagune Workshop 2012 with a view to including those aspects required to imbue this new initiative with a multi-disciplinary and participatory approach. This year the students carrying out their phd in the Basque Science Network will have the opportunity to present their thesis by poster presenting in the workshop.
