About the Centre for Climate Science and Policy Research, CSPR

CSPR is a platform for collaborative knowledge production and dissemination to trigger and promote societal changes towards safe and just climate futures for all. Our goal is to create knowledge and methodological approaches that can support and advance national and international climate actions.

Researchers at the Centre for Climate Science and Policy Research (CSPR) study the challenges of climate change mitigation, adaptation and sustainability transformations. CSPR research encompasses global to local scales, from UN climate conferences to local governments and citizens.

We develop, share and apply insights and approaches from political science, geography, environmental humanities, visualization and communication, physics, environmental and sustainability science.

The event is arranged by Centre for Climate Science and Policy Research, Stockholm Environment Institute and Mistra Geopolitics. All are welcome, registration is required.
