Taking Climate Change Seriously: From adaptation to transformation

I won’t be able to attend (being 9 time zones away) but would love to be at this important presentation by Karen O’Brien
Professor, Department of Sociology and Human Geography, University of Oslo.  She’ll be the featured speaker at the free Stockholm Seminars on Friday March 16, 2018 at 2:00 PM at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.

The announcent pitches it like this: ”In this talk, Karen O’Brien distinguishes  between technical problems and adaptive challenges and discuss why successful adaptation to climate change will only be realized through social transformations. The talk will draw on research from the AdaptationCONNECTS project, which focuses on the role of creativity, collaboration, empowerment and flexibility in realizing adaptation through transformation.”

If someone goes, take notes and share them!
