4th European Fair on Education for Sustainable Development

4th European Fair on Education for Sustainable Development9 – 11 September 2015, Hamburg

In 2014 the UN-decade of “Education for Sustainable Development” which generated manifold activities and projects in the field of sustainable development came to an end. After its completion there still exists a growing demand for international cooperation and initiatives. As a subsequent agenda to the UN-decade the UNESCO proclaimed the Global Action Program on “Education for Sustainable Development” for the years 2015 to 2019. A roadmap was published as a schedule that clarifies the aims, facilitates the strategic focus and stimulates engagement in the program.

For this reason the RCE Hamburg and Region together with the Research and Transfer Centre Applications of Life Sciences (FTZ-ALS) of the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg) organizes the sustainability fair European Fair on Education for Sustainable Development - „Implementing Sustainable Development in European Cities and Regions“.

Thematically, the event focuses on a wide range of areas which include (but are not limited to) Education for Sustainable Development initiatives surrounding themes such as renewable energy and resource efficiency, environmental management and climate change.

World Symposium on Climate Change Adaption (WSCCA 2015)

Towards implementing innovative approaches for climate change adaptation
Manchester, UK, 2-4 September 2015

Climate change is among the major challenges of modern times. As the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) produced by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has shown, there are still many challenges ahead and many needs to be met, calling from action not only from government, but also from various stakeholders. Apart from the knowledge offered by modelling and forecasts which allows to understand the problem and how it develops in the future, mankind needs to know more about approaches, methods and tools, which may help to cope with the social, economic and political problems posed by climate change now. In other words, there is a need to speed up developments in the field of climate change adaptation.

From 8-9 July 2015, the University of Mauritius hosts the "International Conference on Energy, Environment and Climate Change (ICEECC 2015)", a multi-disciplinary, peer-reviewed international conference on sustainable energy and environment. The 2-day event focuses on energy conversion and management, green energy, environmental engineering, environmental management, climate change and sustainable development, in the context of Small Island Developing States and beyond. Participants are expected to come from a range of sectors associated with energy and the environment in a development context, e.g. environmental research centres and universities, companies, government and civil society. Finally, ICEECC 2015 will include plenary sessions, keynote speeches, poster sessions and parallel oral presentation sessions.

International Conference on Renewable Energy and Climate Change (ICREC2014)

14 - 18 July 2014, Laucala Bay Campus, Suva, Fiji

Pacific Island Countries face many common challenges, including lack of indigenous fossil fuel supply, their remoteness and the low-lying nature of their island homes. This makes them susceptible to economic challenges such as fuel price shocks as well as extreme weather events, sea level rise, storm surges and ground water pollution caused by climate change.

A primary aim of this conference is to provide a platform for the people of the Pacific to meet, mingle and share with their counterparts from the ACP as well as their development partners their knowledge and experiences and perhaps work out their own strategies for solving their common problems. The ICRECC2014 could also be used as an excellent opportunity for team building and informal forward planning. The wealth of knowledge and experience available at the Conference will be enormous considering the number of participants who would attend and as such we hope you will use this as an opportunity to establish both personal and professional links that are lasting and productive to you all.
