To support our work advocating for the relevance and importance of geography in policymaking and professional practice, the Society has recently re-launched our ‘Environment and Society Forum’ series. These events provide space for knowledge exchange between policymakers, professionals and researchers in often complex and sensitive areas of decision-making to which geography can bring new insight.
In early December, policymakers and professionals from across the environment, finance, and investment sectors will come together with geographers working on climate change and the carbon transition to explore investment solutions to the challenge of decarbonisation. Combining the latest geographical research with expert sector analysis, attendees will analyse the progress being made on financing green innovations, examine the potential for greening the finance sector, and explore how these can contribute to a net-zero economy.
Financing net zero: how can investment meet the climate challenge? will take place on Thursday 5 December. Are you working at the intersection of investment, climate change and sustainability? Find out more about the event and register to attend.
Future topics for our Environment and Society Forum series include larger-than-local governance for the green belt, and the barriers to and benefits of blue/green infrastructures.
If you have any suggestions for other themes or challenges that geography can contribute to, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
