OLI Workshop: Climate Change and ICT

ICT and the Emerging Framework for Climate Change

This OLI workshop is presented by Mr. Arthur Levin, JD (bio here) and presently facilitated by Ms. Meg Barker (bio here, scroll down). It is aimed at organizations and professionals that need an improved or updated understanding of the rapidly evolving global policy and regulatory framework to address climate change, and additionally, the key role ICT (information and communication technology) is playing to adapt to and mitigate that change. The workshop includes the latest developments from COP 24 in Katowice, Poland of December 2018, inside analysis of the 2015 Paris Agreement and its implementation, and perspective on the impact of global political trends and the latest findings in climate science. Because our small group, on-line workshops allow for questions and answers (Q&A) and discussion, participants have an opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of a topic that is constantly changing, and being challenged on different sides.

Is this workshop for you?

The target audience includes municipal, provincial, state and federal government analysts and government decision-makers who are not fully up-to-speed and need a rapid briefing, delivered in an efficient manner, and where on-line networking and discussion are sought. Our target audience also includes knowledge-based business – in advanced and developing countries – whose products, process innovations and services are, or may be, subject to climate change regulations, or those that work in the ICT area. Also likely to benefit from this OLI workshop are NGOs who need a better understanding of how ICT can contribute to mitigation and adaptation to climate change.

Details

The OLI workshop and take-away webinar series includes 3, 1-hour  live, on-line sessions that comprise both a presentation and a discussion period. In addition to Q&A, the workshops encourage peer-peer learning and small group networking on-line. You can take 1, 2 or all 3 of the workshops.
