International Symposium

Carbon neutrality: How do we get there?

ABSTRACT

In order to comply with the objectives of the Paris Agreement, it is imperative to build a collective reflection combining climate sciences, social sciences and political sciences which will lead to a necessary evolution of our collective organizations and our behaviors to reach carbon neutrality and adapt to the impacts of climate change at all scales. This evolution must be undertaken, not only by citizens but also by governments, communities and businesses.
Through keynotes and round tables, this international symposium will recall the challenges of carbon neutrality for a country, a territory, a company or a citizen before addressing the issue of the differences between stated ambitions and current trajectories, and will reflect on the levers and challenges to achieve carbon neutrality.
