There’s such a thing as “too much information”, especially for
World Conference on
The World Conference on Climate Change & Sustainability (Climate Week 2022) with theme of Advancing the Global efforts on Climate Transparency, offers an interdisciplinary forum for the discussion of the impact of climate change and global warming in the global context. This conference is the foremost global forum for multilateral discussion of climate change matters, and has an incredibly busy schedule.
Climate Week 2022 will be bringing together a range of key actors from institutions, governments, cities and communities, the private sector, and civil society, including young minds, from all over the world, to make the world more climate-resilient.
You’ll have the chance to meet other Climate Leaders and build a network of fellow activists to support you in the work ahead. Because we’re all in this fight together – and that’s how we’ll win. Together
The stated goal of the conference is to “to provide a discussion forum for global leaders undertaking research on climate and climate change in an array of disciplines, including atmospheric, biological, earth and ocean sciences, social sciences and environment.”
As Vice President Gore likes to say, “We must, we can, and we will solve the climate crisis.” At the conference, you’ll learn how acting now to swiftly transition from dirty fossil fuels to clean energy can dramatically limit global warming.
This Climate Week 2022 will have people from all walks of life – from scientists, researchers, doctors, educators, policymakers, industrialists, students, academics, and social workers – and will provide a unique platform for exceptional leaders in the field of climate change. The meeting that would kick off in September 2022 will focus on how to phrase key takeaways, such as how quickly the Earth is barreling toward the 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) warming threshold set by the Paris climate agreement in order to avoid the most catastrophic effects of global warming. Here’s just a sampling of some of the things you’ll learn at our three-day meeting:

Emeritus, University of Edinburgh
Stephen Hugh Salter is an Emeritus Professor of Engineering Design at the University of Edinburgh and inventor of the eponymous Salter duck wave energy device. Salter is also a proponent of geoengineering and is responsible for creating the concept of the mechanical enhancement of clouds to achieve cloud reflectivity enhancement. The wide tank at the University of Edinburgh — a novel design and invention by Stephen Salter, built-in 1977 — was the world's first multi-directional wave tank equipped with absorbing wavemakers. Feedback control systems on the wave-making flaps were used for the absorption of reflected waves, propagating along the water surface of the tank interior towards the 89 flaps. Stephen Salter is a Specialist Advisor at wave Energy Company Aquamarine Power advising on the development of the Oyster wave energy converter. Salter was appointed MBE in the 2004 Birthday Honours for services to engineering. In 2012 he received the Royal Academy of Engineering Sustained Achievement Award.
