DCUBS Hosts Siemens Climate Change Lecture Series 2009

Date: Wednesday, 25th February 2009
Time: 1pm
Venue: Room QG27, DCU Business School

The Ecology Foundation, in association with Siemens Ireland, is presenting a series of lectures on climate change and its implications for the future of society. The lecture series is designed to educate and encourage undergraduate and graduate students to assess how they can play a role in meeting the challenge of tackling climate change.

The lectures not only focus on the challenge of climate change, but also on the positive role science, engineering, innovation and business can make by addressing it. The lectures have been prepared by The Ecology Foundation’s climate change specialists.

The first lecture on The Business of Climate Change - an explanation of how climate change will transform global commerce and affect business strategy, illustrating how business can play a leading role to help society adapt to the inevitable challenges, will take place next Wednesday 25th February 2009 at 1pm in QG27, DCU Business School.

With climate change becoming the world’s number one issue both for business and government, tomorrow’s graduates will need to be aware of the opportunities and risks inherent in this new paradigm. The Ecology Foundation believes that the lectures will be of distinct value to all students and particularly to those studying engineering and business disciplines.

The speaker is Mr David Korowicz, Head of Research & Consultant.

David is a Physicist by training and has been helping large companies develop strategies to manage the risks and opportunities of climate change and energy security, and advising on investment in technology. He has appeared in the media and lectured widely on energy security, food security, and climate change. He is on the executive of Feasta, the Foundation for the Economics of Sustainability, and is active in a number of European climate policy fora. His special interest is the analysis and management of systemic risks arising out of climate, energy, food, and macro-economic interactions.

All are welcome to attend.
