Climate Change World Campaign Group Conference 2015

This is to announce the call for papers for the Climate Change World

Campaign Group Conference 15 (CCWCG Conference 15), 14th- 18th December
2015 at Hilton Hotels and Resorts London, United Kingdom.


Background:

Many countries all over the globe have chosen to start programs as a global
community aimed at combating the fast approaching threat that is climate
change. Burning biomass results in the production of low levels of carbon
dioxide. However, burning of traditional fossil fuels like oil, natural gas
and gasoline leads to increased carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, which
is the gas that is largely liable for climate change. Furthermore, bio
energy is now being used in almost all manufacturing, industrial and home
applications all around the globe.  Being the 4th large energy resource,
the energy generated from biomass can cater to roughly 16% of the energy
demands for the whole world. To move forward will require new and more
efficient solutions, technologies and products alongside behavioral change.
Climate change is now universally recognized as a significant global
environmental challenge and as a consequence, debate over the measures
needed to tackle climate change has moved up to the top of the agenda
amongst civil society, business and government. The United Nations Climate
Change Conference in Copenhagenin December 2009 will highlight the major
challenges and opportunities associated with climate change as we move
towards post 2012 carbon dioxide (CO2) reduction targets. In October 2008,
the UK raised the bar by announcing a target of cutting CO2 emissions by
80% before 2050. Innovation will be a core part of the way forward. The
Stern Review underlined that increased investment in R&D and innovation
could significantly reduce CO2 emissions and we have seen more than $5
billion of venture capital invested in clean tech worldwide since January
2007 (Source: Ernst & Young).. However, we need to create much better
international, national and regional structures and systems to adapt to
climate change as well those to stimulate, nurture and progress new low
carbon ideas through R&D to commercialization and the marketplace. A new
system is needed that fosters sustainable, low carbon and resource
productive innovation - short, medium and long-term. Designers, innovators,
investors, entrepreneurs, consumers and governments all have a role to play
in the change that is needed.



Concept:
CCWCG Conference 15 themed ?Impacts of High Resolution Climatology on
Sustainable Development" Climate Change Policy and Markets will provide a
platform to discuss the future opportunities and challenges related to the
design, development and commercialization of low carbon innovation,
technologies, products and services. CCWCG Conference 15 will include
invited and refereed papers from academics, consultants, entrepreneurs,
investors, technology providers, designers, sustainability, environment and
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) managers as well as other business
functions. The event will be a unique learning experience, networking space
and an opportunity to think. Delegates will come globally from companies,
entrepreneurs, as well as academia, government and non-governmental
organizations (NGOs). The conference is supported by an international
Advisory Board.
