The Australian Government's Technology Investment Roadmap and First Low Emissions Technology Statement outline various technologies aimed at reducing Australia's greenhouse gas emissions. Join this ANU Energy Change Institute Public Forum as we explore the Roadmap and Statement in detail.
The purpose of this presentation is to raise the issue of disaster fatigue. The implications of the combined and prolonged effects of the Black Summer bushfires and the COVID 19 pandemic in Australia are predicted to be far-reaching.
How might we incentivise and embed more climate friendly behaviour into the lives of students and staff? Join us in this workshop to discuss your ideas with ANU staff and students, and members of the community.
After a summer when much of south-east Australia burned dramatically there seems to be some growing awareness that carbon emissions mitigation alongside zero carbon energy generation and industry are essential.
In this talk, Dr Albert Palazzo will consider climate change from the perspective of national survival. He will outline the threat climate change poses to the operation of human-made systems on which humanity depends and the risks their destabilisation poses for civilisation.
Dr Robert Trezona is an investor in clean technology start-ups and a member of the Energy Technology Commission. In this talk he will detail these innovation needs and the potential for directed research to create new technologies that could be scaled via entrepreneurial companies.
This one-day short course has been designed for professionals who want to gain an overview of the latest developments around climate change. This is a foundation course, which can be followed by more specialist courses tailored to the needs of different departments or groups, for example Climate and Security or Climate and Health.
Led by Professor Sharon Friel (Director, RegNet), the symposium will bring together experts from academia, civil society and government, with a focus on public health, climate science, regulatory governance, and public policy.
Many of the enduring challenges in Australian domestic policy are seemingly intractable. How we respond - or don't respond - will shape our society for decades to come. How do we energise on critical domestic issues including Indigenous disadvantage, climate change and tax policy? How will the arts and our demographic mix change our view of the future Australia?
This symposium is an opportunity to explore the role, influence and impact of gender on climate change adaptation, using a combination of presentations, performances, videos, artworks and audience Q&A sessions.
The ability to work is central to most economic and social outcomes. Using data from the Indian Human Development Survey (IHDS-II), with the scheduling in advance of interviews ensuring quasi-random assignment of temperature treatment to respondent.
Dr Joëlle Gergis presented her work and associated book to 175 people on the night. The book was also available at the event with Joëlle signing copies and discussing the implications of her work with participants. It was a successful event and thanks to Joëlle for coming to the ANU.
Tatiana Filatova illustrates how agent-based computational economic models can be used to study adaptation to floods accounting for the role of social interactions and risk perception biases in this process.
To address complex climate plus change challenges in mountains and downstream, International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development develops solutions at the intersection of environment and development of the HKH by facilitating knowledge generation and exchange, transboundary cooperation and science-policy dialogues on water resources and river basin management, biodiversity conservation and use, landscape management and resilience building.
Climate Update 2018 will present an overview of how our climate is changing and how we’re responding to these changes. You'll hear from experts, practitioners and leading commentators from across Australia.
Antonio Mozqueira, Manager of Climate Change Policy with the ACT Government, will kick off the discussion by briefly outlining the key themes being considered as the ACT develops its new Climate Strategy.
Project Drawdown is facilitating a broad coalition of researchers, policy makers, business leaders and activists to assemble and present the best available information on climate solutions in order to describe their beneficial financial, social and environmental impact over the next thirty years.
ANU Climate Update 2018 will present an overview of how our climate is changing and how we are responding to these changes in Australia and around the world. You'll hear from experts, practitioners and leading commentators from across ANU and throughout Australia.
The ACT Government has set ambitious targets of reducing emissions by 40% from 1990 levels by 2020 and achieving net zero emissions by 2050 at the latest. So what does this mean for transport, energy use, buildings and waste treatment in the ACT? And what would a zero emissions future look like?
Mark Butler will be in conversation with Mark Howden on Mark's new book, Climate Wars, which is a forceful case for using less and cleaner energy. As the consequences of climate change become perilously close to the point of no return, time-wasting wars over what to do distract us from taking real action.
The 2017 Jaeger-Hales lecture will be given by Dr Valérie Masson-Delmotte. The Jaeger-Hales Lecture is a prestigious biennial event in the School calendar that honours the foundational contributions of Professors Jaeger and Hales. The lecture is delivered by a highly distinguished scientist in the field of geosciences.
Over 100 Australian Indigenous ranger groups manage a significant proportion of Australia’s natural and cultural resources. Two Indigenous ranger groups in Australia’s monsoonal far north are concerned about a perceived escalation of impacts on cultural heritage sites arising from climate extremes, variation and change.
The seminar facilitated the exchange of best practices between Australian and European practitioners in assessing and integrating climate and resilience issues in security strategies, emergency preparedness & intervention and disaster risk reduction and adaptation to climate change, in particular in the Pacific.

Anna Krien will be in conversation with Will Steffen to discuss her new book, Quarterly Essay 66, The Long Goodbye: Coal, Coral and Australia's Climate Deadlock, which explores the psychology and politics of a warming world. She visits frontlines in Australia's climate wars - the Great Barrier Reef, South Australia, the Coalition party room.
