Event description

Description

With the US as the only country that has rejected the Paris Agreement, King's Think Tank would like to extend the invitation to join the Energy & Environment Policy Center for our upcoming expert panel discussion on the Paris Agreement: A Global Solution Beyond the US. The landmark Paris Agreement delivered the first truly global deal in tackling climate change and the Bonn summit is vital in building the rules that will enable the deal to work.

This event will look into the impact on the Paris Agreement progression in light of Donald Trump pulling the US out of the deal, the progress of the Paris Agreement and its impact on US's international standing. We are honored to have gathered several experts on the field for our evening of stimulating and insightful discussion.

Speakers:

Mike Helmsley - Expert in the field of sustainable energy and acting as UK Government Advisor on Climate Change as part of the Committee on Climate Change (CCC). He specialized in energy policy for his MSc Environmental Technology at Imperial College London and have vast experience in both public and private sectors.

Dr. George Adamson - King’s lecturer in the geography department and interdisciplinary geographer with past experience in environmental consulting. His research interests include institutional responses to natural disasters and socio-political discourse of the climate today.

3rd and 4th speaker to be confirmed.
