Climate and Sustainability Roadmap Social Dimensions Writing Workshop
EBRC is developing four case studies to examine the social and non-technical dimensions related to the technical advancements proposed in the Climate and Sustainability Roadmap. At this workshop, participants will explore in-depth the regulatory, societal, economic, and security issues.
Climate and Sustainability Roadmap Virtual Writing Workshop 8: January 28th
Friday, January 28th, 2021
12:00pm – 6:00pm Eastern | 9:00am – 3:00pm Pacific
Note: due to the current COVID situation, this workshop has been changed to a virtual event.
The workshop will focus on drafting our technical research roadmap to advance engineering biology tools and technologies that respond to the urgency of the climate crisis and promote long-term sustainability.
This workshop is by invitation only.
Registration closes January 18, 2022
Agenda: Coming Soon!
- Descriptions of enabling and/or transforming tools and technologies for each of the Roadmap’s previously identified technical themes: Large-scale Biosequestration of Greenhouse Gases; Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation in Application Sectors (Food/Ag, Transportation & Energy Production, Materials Production); Conservation of Ecosystems and Biodiversity; Enabling Sustainable Industrial Processes; and Mitigating Environmental Pollution.
- Drafting a set of research plans, with specific waypoints, to develop and scale these tools and technologies to address climate and sustainability challenges in a timely, sustainable, and equitable way.
- Consider the impacts these technologies might have on biodiversity and the environment; consider social dimensions and non-technical challenges, such as security, policy, and regulations.
