Track Policies


Climate change is radically challenging nearly all aspects of human culture, from micro-level individual habits of transportation and consumption to the macro-level organization of global institutions and networks. Papers may address some of the following questions: What are the cultural tools of mitigating and adapting to climate change? What is a sustainable culture? Does climate change declare a renaissance of nature in culture?

Søren Riis, Assistant Professor at CUID, is the cultural track director.

We are also happy to have Associate Professor Evan Selinger aboard to facilitate this track on 21 April. Selinger is an Associate Professor in Philosophy at the Rochester Institute of Technology and Graduate Program Faculty at the Golisano Institute of Sustainability.

How we communicate about climate change within the media and our everyday lives can have a profound impact on the actions we decide to take. Communicating about climate change requires correctly reported information in the media, as well as the articulation of ownership, participation and action amongst all relevant stakeholders. How can communication serve as a fundamental articulator of social mobilization in the mitigation of and adaptation to climate change?

Thomas Tufte, Professor at CBIT, is the communication track director.

We are also pleased to welcome Minou Fuglesang as facilitator of the communication track. Fuglesang is a Media Anthropologist and a Health Promoter. She is the Executive Director of the Civil Society Organization Femina HIP, a multimedia platform in Tanzania.

Clean Technology

Mitigation and adaptation to climate changes has a technical aspect that influences most sectors of our societies. The technological aspect focuses on the design and implementation of clean-tech solutions in sectors such as energy production, transport, agriculture, and manufacturing. What are the barriers to the implementation of climate technology and what actions are needed to bring about the required changes?

Conference Director Per Homann Jespersen, Associate Professor at ENSPAC, is also the clean-technology track director.
