The organizers invite researchers and experts, businesses, civil society organizations, climate policy makers, educational professionals, research infrastructure experts and all ACCC members and stakeholders to join in discussing pathways to climate neutrality. This year’s thematic focus is in climate change as a global challenge for civil society and decision-makers and in financing the green transition

The aim of the event is to further develop existing and new collaborations with key ACCC stakeholders from global organisations, countries, businesses, civil society organizations and others. Together, you will work toward practical steps to develop reliable roadmap(s) for carbon neutrality and beyond. During the week, you will: 

  • provide latest research results from ACCC and other climate science related to biosphere-atmosphere interactions; particularly biosphere carbon sequestration, sinks and storages 
  • discuss the financing of carbon sequestration, sinks and storage solutions at scale needed 
  • contribute to a vision for global observations and research infrastructures in atmosphere and climate sciences 
  • collect suggestions and feedback to help us to develop ACCC’s work and to support creating a roadmap for 2025-2028
