Citizens' assembly gives politicians guidance

It's time for the people to have their say on climate change. A newly formed national citizens' assembly mentored by KTH professor Sverker Sörlin, will provide input on climate policy. Sörlin hopes for new ideas on how to reduce emissions in practice.

"A citizens' assembly can give politicians guidance and perhaps reassure them that voters will not flee just because a party has an aggressive climate policy," he says.

Cross-border cooperation behind green energy

How can we transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy? By cooperating across national borders - solar, wind and hydroelectric power can supply the whole of Europe with green electricity, according to a study by KTH Royal Institute of Technology. But it requires effective international relations.

”We show that it is possible to get rid of carbon dioxide emissions by switching to a renewable energy system,” says Anders Wörman, professor and research leader.
