The symposium aims to address questions about how we, universities, research funding and performing organisations, can nurture researchers, teachers, students, support staff and leaders to deal with the breadth and complexity of the net-zero transition. We aim to discuss how to transform our institutional practices, and build alliances with other actors, globally and locally.
In this context, we convene to launch a call to action based on our own commitment for the net-zero transition. This call is open to other partners, leaders and the broad public, to join efforts towards the most pressing challenge of our time, climate change.
