The Road to 2030: Tipping Points for a Climate Positive Future
The Week of March 7, 2022
At the 2022 Annual Conference of the Global Council for Science and the Environment (GCSE), we invite you to join us to examine the role of tipping points in natural and social systems, and in government and policy, to explore a collective goal of achieving a climate positive future. This conference theme goes deep into the core mission of GCSE, to improve the scientific basis of environmental decision-making, shining light on the complexity of how policy, technology, and society can most strategically use science from disparate fields to help the planet heal itself as we move toward key milestones and societal goals. Of primary consideration is how to ensure that in working toward thresholds for recovery, we consider the vulnerabilities of people and ecosystems most at risk and impacted, recognizing that climate change poses disproportionate threats to those underserved, who often stand the most to lose and least to gain.
