This three-day conference (22.-24.Sept 2008) provides an international, politically neutral forum for discussing Policy, Technology and Investment strategies required to tackle climate change.

Registration is required: more info is available online at http://www.cambridgeclimate.com/2008/

With escalating concerns over climate change, and rapidly growing global energy demand, greater action is needed to deploy political and technological solutions to ensure a rapid decarbonisation of the world energy system. The barriers to overcoming our current dependence on fossil fuels are no longer technological. The technologies exist; but they presently require immense scaling up. This event aims to address how to achieve such large-scale deployment through a politically-neutral summit of policy advisors, technological experts and investment specialists.

This event is organised by CambridgeClimate, an initiative of the Cambridge Zero Carbon Society, CUE , and with additional support from:

The Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research
The Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (Judge Business School)
The Centre for Energy Studies (Judge Business School)
The Cambridge Centre For Climate Change Mitigation Research
Cambridge University Entrepreneurs
Cambridge University Technology and Enterprise Club
