Tyndall Assembly 2015: Policy challenges of climate change: the next 10 years

Our focus this year at our annual Tyndall Assembly is the immediate outcomes for climate mitigation, adaptation and research, following-on from the UN climate change summit that will be in Paris in December.The Tyndall Assembly is 9-11 September, hosted by at the University of Sussex. We welcome interested public to our speakers and discussions on Wednesday and Thursday evening.

The climate-science and policy-making nexus is often considered in terms of targets for 2050 which makes success a distant measure and adding to the inertia for taking decisions. At this year’s Tyndall Assembly we are evaluating what needs to change now for success in 2050 and the role of our research accelerating transformation.

The purpose of the Tyndall Assembly is to stimulate ideas, learn about each other’s research and communication, and identify activities that will lead to high-impact publications and new research projects.
