This conference is organized as part of the dialogue within the education process of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) and brings together representatives from Asian and European universities, Ministries of Education and different stakeholder organisations.
The climate crisis is a global challenge requiring a global effort. In order to achieve the goal of limiting the rise of global temperatures to less than 1.5°C as outlined by the Paris Agreement, the world needs to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. Universities as research hubs driving innovation and educating the future workforce and leaders are important stakeholders in driving the green transition forward. At the last Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Summit the heads of states of Asian and European members reaffirmed their strong commitment to the Paris Agreement and the goals set within this agreement.
The conference will take place on 30 May on DAAD Virtual Events portal. For more information and registration, please visit the event webpage.
