EMA Conference to be organised at CEU: Higher Education and Climate Change

Erasmus Mundus Students and Alumni Association (EMA) is going to organise its first thematic conference on higher education and climate change. This Erasmus Mundus Conference will bring together students, alumni and scholars to discuss what role higher education can play in front of the change climate today. It offers a communication and networking platform for the students and alumni and the EMMC faculty members to broaden their knowledge and insight on climate change issues beyond their own fields of study and to utilize different angles for meeting the challenges climate change poses to the human society. This conference will also involve experts and professionals in the emerging climate change sector, which will be an excellent opportunity for EM students and alumni to establish connections with climate change professionals and to deepen their commitment to professional development in the field of climate change.

The two-day conference intends to accumulate valuable experience and to create a model project for the preparation and organization of future EMA conferences. It will consist of a plenary session delivered by internationally recognised experts specialising in higher education and/or climate change, as well as, parallel workshops focusing on different subjects contributed by EMA members. The participating Erasmus Mundus students and alumni have the opportunity to bring issues from their field of study associated with climate change and interact with other participants in order to find ways to address them through the course of higher education. The conference will also seek to establish an Erasmus Mundus Forum on Climate Change to continue the dialogue and networking in the climate change field between the interested EMA members.
