David Bradford Energy and Environmental Policy Seminar Series

Mon, Nov 29, 2021, 12:15 pm to 1:15 pm

The change towards climate neutrality, or net zero emissions by 2050 will require fundamental systemic transitions in the core systems of our societies, including the energy, the food, the mobility, and the built environment systems. With the European Green Deal the European Union is framing a science-based policy agenda with the ambition to drive economic, technological, and investment decision, and also social policy in this direction. It looks at 2030 targets as a stepping stone towards climate neutrality ambitions by 2050. In this lecture, we will explore the European Green Deal agenda from a paradigmatic systemic change perspective, as well as from a concrete governance perspective.

Bio: Over the last 20 years, Dr. Hans Bruyninckx has conducted and managed policy-oriented research in the areas of environmental politics, climate change, and sustainable development. He was responsible for research in the domains of policy evaluation, monitoring and reporting, methodology development, environmental policy integration, and more recently also on long-term transition policies. His experience pertains to the level of the regions (Flanders in a comparative European perspective), the EU Member States, the EU level, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and processes of global environmental governance (climate change in particular).
