Oxford to Host a GGR Summer School and Climate Neutrality Forum in September 2021

Event date: September 6, 2021

Save-the-date – The University of Oxford will be hosting two interlocking events in September 2021.

Monday 6th September – Friday 10th September 2021: The Oxford Martin School will be hosting a Summer School on Greenhouse Gas Removal. More information to be posted here shortly.

Wednesday 8th September – Friday 10th September 2021: The Climate Neutrality Forum will bring together leading researchers, policymakers and practitioners working on achieving climate neutrality. The meeting will take place simultaneously at three hubs – Berlin, Milan and Oxford – linked together to create a blended event that is both in-person and virtual in nature. Delegates will be drawn from academic, policy, civil society and business communities. The objective is to identify a suite of high-impact policy recommendations. These will be presented ahead of the COP26 meeting with the aim of raising ambition.

The Forum will be co-hosted by the Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change (Berlin), the RFF-CMCC European Institute on Economics and the Environment (Milan) and Oxford Net Zero at the University of Oxford (Oxford).
