The Europaeum Environment Blog


The Europaeum Environmental Blog began in 2010 in the lead up to a Europaeum graduate workshop in Paris on The Politics and Economics of Climate Change - Lessons for European diplomacy, where participants met to review the key issues in reaching a binding and global treaty on climate change. Students and scholars of the Europaeum network - many of which participated in the Paris workshop - contributed to the dialogue in our first blog entries on climate change. Opening the blog topic up to environmental issues such as sustainable development, green economies, renewable energies, environmental policy, etc., we hope to be an up-to-date resource for students and scholars to express their views on these important issues.
