No, it’s not for the Royal Wedding. The ABA Standing Committee on Environmental Law (SCEL), in coordination with the London School of Economics and Political Science and the UK Environmental Law Association, will present “Navigating the New Green Economy: The Challenges of Climate Change and the Opportunities for Clean Energy” on May 23-24, 2011.
Keynote speakers include Lord Anthony Giddens, member of the House of Lords and author of The Politics of Climate Change, and Lisa Heinzerling, professor at Georgetown University Law Center and former Assistant Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Topics of discussion will include:
• Financing a sustainable reduced-carbon future
• Regulations and incentives in emerging green technologies
• Energy efficiency
• Carbon marketplaces
• Renewable energy subsidies and trade
• Technology transfer
• REDD – Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation.
N.B. I serve as the ABA Section of State and Local Government Law’s liaison to SCEL, but I haven’t played a role in the organization of this conference. Congratulations to the good people at SCEL for putting it together!
