Green Economy Transition | Oxford Martin School’s Director to deliver UCL ISR public lecture on 30 November


Achim Steiner (Director of the Oxford Martin School) will deliver UCL ISR Public Lecture titled ‘Lost in the Green Economy Transition: Environmental Imperatives vs. Economic Uncertainties’ at University College London (UCL) (Room B404 – LT2, Cruciform Building, Gower Street, London, WC1E 6BT) on 30 November 2016 (17:45 – 19:00).


The lecture will focus on a number of ‘trade-offs’ associated with transitioning to a green economy in the wake of the historic Paris Agreement and adoption of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and how these may be addressed in evolving pathways in the domains of policy, the economy and technology innovation.


Achim Steiner was appointed Director of the Oxford Martin School on 1 September 2016. Before that he served as United Nations Under-Secretary General and Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme UNEP (2006-2016).


This lecture is part of the series of public lectures hosted by the UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources (ISR).
