Grand Seminar: The "IPCC AR6: Mitigation of Climate Change"
The aim of this event is to highlight the recent IPCC report “Mitigation of Climate Change", also in the light of a recent report from the Swedish Climate Policy Council. Guided by insights from IPCC lead author and researchers working with climate issues in various subjects, we will discuss the IPCC-report’s implications for Sweden in both a local and a global context. Welcome to join the discussions on which changes are needed in society and in research in order to tackle the impacts of climate change.
Meet and listen to the perspectives from researchers working in a variety of disciplines and subjects, and join the discussions on which changes are needed in society and in research in order to tackle the impacts of climate change.

This event is co-organized by the national Strategic Research Areas BECC and MERGE and the Thematic Collaboration Initiative LU Land.
BECC is a collaboration between Lund University and University of Gothenburg in Sweden. BECC brings together more than 350 scientists from the natural and social sciences to perform research on the combined consequences of anthropogenic emissions, climate and land-use changes on biodiversity and ecosystem services on multiple scales, to provide a scientific basis for the sustainable management of ecosystems and biodiversity.
MERGE brings together more than 150 researchers collaborating across five Swedish universities - Lund University, Chalmers, University of Gothenburg, KTH, and Linnaeus University - and SMHI, to form a cutting edge research environment with a focus on the interactions between the climate and the terrestrial biosphere, and on the development and application of detailed process models, climate models and Earth System models.
LU Land - Land use for a sustainable future is a thematic collaboration initiative at Lund University, consisting of more than 60 researchers and almost 30 societal partners. LU Land is an open platform gathering researchers and societal actors for dialogue and collaboration around issues related to sustainable land use.
