Submissions are now open: Petrochemicals and Climate Change Conference
Refficiency’s group leader, Professor Jonathan Cullen, is co-chairing the International Conference on Petrochemicals and Climate Change: Technology, Policy, and Societal Change in a Time of Planetary Crises. Submissions have now opened! See the Call for Contributions below.
We welcome you to submit a proposal for a contribution to the International Conference on Petrochemicals and Climate Change: Technology, Policy, and Societal Change in a Time of Planetary Crises, which is being held at the University of Cambridge 1 – 3 July, 2024. Due to limited places being available at the conference, attendance will be by invitation only, so we ask all those who wish to attend the conference to make a submission. If you do not want to present at the conference, please refer to the participant option below. Registration will open once decisions have been made regarding submissions.
This conference will be a meeting place for people from academia and other organisations (such as civil society organisations) who take an interest in the central role that the petrochemical and plastics industries play in the planetary crises of climate change, global pollution and biodiversity loss. We see that this conference could provide a great opportunity for learning across fields of research that are rarely connected, enabling discussion and debate amongst people from a wide range of disciplines. We especially aim to provide a unique forum for community building for early career researchers and professionals and thus offer generous travel scholarships to enable their participation.
Proposals for contributions should primarily address one of the three central themes of the conference: (1) Global context and impacts; (2) Solutions and interventions for a just transition; (3) Actors and institutions.
Proposals should include a description of your contribution in 300-500 words, and can include up to 5 essential references, as appropriate for the applicant. Carefully describe the relevant background, key messages, as well as the relevance of the contribution for research, policy, or stakeholders in the context of our central themes. Places at the conference are limited, so each proposal will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
The committee welcome people from all sectors and backgrounds, including those who want to participate without presenting.
