Event: Tipping Points – from climate crisis to positive transformation

12 September 2022 | 11.00-13.00


Published July 7, 2022

This meeting is a ‘call to action’ to form an alliance to improve warnings of the proximity of catastrophic climate tipping points and to accelerate positive tipping points to avert the climate crisis.

The programme will cover the latest developments in both negative and positive tipping points, at scales from local to global, and from theory to practice. It will consider the risks from climate tipping points and opportunities for positive tipping points for different regions, communities, sectors, and supply chains.

This is an in-person meeting with a small number of talks live-streamed for virtual audiences. The programme will involve ‘state-of-the-art’ plenaries and workshops to advance the research and action agendas.

We will inspire, inform, and listen to attendees on how to deliver positive tipping points across sectors, communities, and countries. Through participating in the meeting you can join a growing alliance of partners that are working to develop the urgent and rapid solutions required to address the climate and ecological emergency through a socially just transformation.

Working with world-leading experts in tipping points science, together we can harness our resources to accelerate positive change and realise the associated benefits.

The event is open to anyone working on or interested in tipping points. Speakers will be from academia, industry, government, and Third Sectors to highlight the need for rapid and transformative solutions as well as the risks and early warning requirements on negative tipping points.

The meeting is organized by the Global Systems Institute, Earth Commission, International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis and Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. It is hosted by the University of Exeter. For more information on the venue and location please click here.
