Book Launch: Innovating Climate Governance
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM, 3 May 2018
The Faculty of Social Science and Public Policy, KCL and Cambridge University Press , King's College London, The Exchange, Bush House, Aldwych, United Kingdom
The launch of ‘Innovating Climate Governance: Moving Beyond Experiments’ co-edited by Bruno Turnheim (King’s College London), Paula Kivimaa (University of Sussex) and Frans Berkhout (King’s College London).
Hear from the authors and chapter contributors, with commentary from Professor Fred Steward, University of Westminster. The event will be followed by a drinks reception.
This event will mark the launch of a new book which critically looks at climate governance experimentation, focusing on how experimental outcomes become embedded in practices, rules and norms. After the perceived failure of global approaches to tackling climate change, enthusiasm for local climate initiatives has blossomed world-wide, suggesting a more experimental approach to climate governance.
This book reflects on what climate governance experiments achieve, as well as what happens after and beyond these experiments. A bottom-up, polycentric approach is analysed, exploring the outcomes of climate experiments and how they can have broader, transformative effects in society.
