In the past years, environmental issues such as global warming have been threatening all sectors of society including civil society as it greatly affects our lives. Since the Kyoto Protocol was brought into effect in 2005, a number of concrete countermeasures to reduce the impacts of global warming have been devised and implemented including efforts to reduce greenhouse gases. One of the most recent initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is by realising a low carbon society. But what exactly do we mean by this? How can we achieve it? How does it operate?
In this International Symposium, Asia-Pacific scientists, policy-makers and stakeholders will discuss general issues and recent developments surrounding the topic of low carbon society and how it can contribute to the global effort to reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere and reverse the impacts of global warming. Specific measures and activities that will help promote a low carbon society will also be discussed.
