Join us for this webinar series that aims to advance the knowledge about tipping elements, irreversibility, and abrupt changes in the Earth system. This installment will focus on how to tip society, rather than the planet.

The series is a joint activity of the Analysis, Integration, and Modeling of the Earth System (AIMES) global research project of Future Earth, the Earth Commission Working Group 1 Earth and Human Systems Intercomparison Modelling Project (EHSMIP) under the Global Commons Alliance, and the Safe Landing Climates Light House Activity of World Climate Research Program (WCRP). IIASA co-hosts the scientific secretariat of Working Group 1 of the Earth Commission and is one of the organizers of these events.

The webinar includes presentations by:

  • David Armstrong McKay (University of Exeter): Climate tipping points: how close are they, and what can we do about them?
  • Mark Meldrum (Systemiq): Socioeconomic tipping points to drive accelerated adoption of climate solutions – what we know and what we don’t know
  • Q&A/ Discussion 

Moderated by Ruth Townend (Chatham House).
