Climate change and green transition as global challenges for science and society
2nd Atmosphere and Climate Competence Center (ACCC) Impact Week
When: April 11-14, 2023
“Climate change and green transition as global challenges for science and society”, -the 2nd Atmosphere and Climate Competence Center (ACCC) Impact Week was organizedon April 11-14, 2023 in Helsinki by the ACCC partners; Institute for Atmospheric and Earth System Research (INAR)/University of Helsinki, Finnish Meteorological Institute, Tampere University and University of Eastern Finland. During the four day event we brought together 360 participants in Vuosaari or on-line. Daily participation in Vuosaari, at the Sofia Cultural Center, varied from 80 – 120 people. As an audience we invited researchers and experts, businesses, civil society organizations, climate policy makers, educational professionals, research infrastructure experts and all ACCC members and stakeholders to join us in discussing pathways to climate neutrality. This year’s thematic focus is in climate change as a global challenge for civil society and decision-makers and in financing the green transition.The aim of the event was to further develop existing and new collaborations with key ACCC stakeholders from global organisations, countries, businesses, civil society organizations and others.
During the week we provided the latest research results from ACCC and other climate science related to biosphere-atmosphere interactions; particularly biosphere carbon sequestration, sinks and storages (Wed 12.April sessions). In addition we discussed the financing of carbon sequestration (Fri 14. April panel discussions), sinks and storage solutions at scale needed and how we could contribute to a vision for global observations and research infrastructures in atmosphere and climate sciences (Thu 13. session) . This all helps us to collect suggestions and to develop ACCC’s work and to support creating a “Towards Climate Neutrality and Beyond” roadmap for 2025-2028 / 2023 / 2050.
