UK Government Climate & Ocean policy – Science, Formation, Implementation of offshore renewable energy

About this event
This webinar aims to shed light on the science driving UK Government climate policy, its formation, and how policy then informs the push for UK offshore renewable energy.
Offshore wind accounts for 13% of the UK’s total energy budget (ONS, 2020.). With spiralling energy costs looming and a concerted push towards renewables, it is essential to understand how this growing source will shape the energy sector in the next few decades.
Likewise, Ocean ecology and biodiversity are vital to our future, and it is crucial to understand how science drives policy and, therefore, renewables. Join us as we dive into the intersection between the three seemingly separate sectors and explore how each depends on the other. The webinar will be in the form of a panel featuring the following expert speakers.

Speakers:
Stephanie Ockenden – UK Government Head of the Ocean, Climate Change, and International Evidence (OCCPIE) team at The Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA). Will discuss how UK government policy is formed and how science translates into legislation, in relation to offshore renewable energy.

Professor Murray Roberts FRSB – Co-Author on IPCC 5th Assessment Report, Professor and Chair of Applied Marine Biology and Ecology, School of Geosciences, The University of Edinburgh. Fellow of the Royal Society of Biologists, Expert on Cold-Water corals, Coordinator iAtlantic project. Will discuss the academic side of UK ocean ecology, biodiversity, and his current research.

Kurs och samnordiskkonferens för modersmålslärare i persiska och dari 21 och 22 november 2020

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is program-2020-Nahid-1-pdf-724x1024.jpg

Den 21 och 22 november ordnade vi en samnordiskkurs och konferens för modersmålslärare i persiska och i dari. Vi samarbetade med ABF och Malmö FN förening. Konferensen var väldigt lyckad och pågick i två långa dagar. Temat var Globala målen 2030. Vi hade olika punkter i programmet med olika föreläsare och kvällen mellan de två dagarna ägnades åt poesi och musik. Det var glädjande att även några modersmålslärare från olika städer i Tyskland kunde deltaga i kurs o konferensen för första gången. Utöver Tyskland hade vi gäster från Norge, Danmark och Frankrike. Sammanlagt blev vi 37 personer men alla var inte närvarande hela tiden. Vi hade ordnat 4 olika salar på nätet för grupparbete och en sal för poesikvällen. Resten av programmet pågick genom Zoom. Kursens föreläsningar och workshop bestod av två delar: den didaktiska delen och den informativa delen som handlade om de globala målen 2030.
