Dear members of the community,
We are pleased to send you the link to the call for papers of the international and interdisciplinary conference :
"Overcoming Obstacles to Climate Change Mitigation: a cross-cutting approach by human and social sciences"
The conference will take place on May 23 and 24, 2024, in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, and online.
This conference is an opportunity to present the results of a research project fundend by JPI Climate (https://change4climate.eu/), and it offers a space for the presentation of other research projects – in the field of human and social sciences – on transition aimed at mitigating climate change and managing its inevitable effects.
We welcome abstracts related to the following topics:
• the analysis of obstacles and disincentives to actions and changes in favor of climate change mitigation and adaptation,
• the research of ways and solutions to fight against these obstacles.
We appreciate abstracts (in English or French) from different human and social disciplines and in particular those based on multi-disciplinary, inter-disciplinary and trans-disciplinary approaches in this field.
In particular, analysis and (reflexive) presentation of concrete actions, campaigns and devices aimed at overcoming obstacles and supporting transition are very welcomed.
Abstracts for papers reporting on research should clearly outline aims, method(s), and results.
Abstracts for conceptual papers should offer a presentation of how the paper contributes to the field.
Abstracts are due by 15 January 2024 at the latest.
A scientific publication is planned following the symposium; more information will follow on this publication.
Confirmed Keynote speakers: prof. Edwin Zaccai (ULB); prof. Elodie Vargas (University of Grenoble Alpes).
Please, do not hesitate to spread this information in your networks.
We remain at your disposal.
