Lecture Series on 03.11.2022, 18:00h to 20:00h in Kassel
Lecture from Prof. Dr. Anita Engels, Thomas Frisch, Solange Commelin (Universität Hamburg)
The comprehensive inquiries of this lecture series about the connections between climate change, raw materials, the energy transition and the global economy will be addressed in this lecture through the lens of the Brazilian companies that are increasingly having to adapt to a CO2-regulated business world. Using Brazil as an example, the presentation will focus on the tensions between fossil fuels, accelerated deforestation, financial markets, national policies, and global climate governance. Embedded in the question of whether achieving the Paris Climate Goals is still plausible under current social conditions, we present our research approach to decarbonizing the economy and our results on Brazil as a case study. The research is conducted in the context of the Hamburg Cluster of Excellence “Climate, Climatic Change, and Society (CLICCS)”.
