On the 17th of April, ECH members Alina Brad and Etienne Schneider will conduct a workshop together with our guest professor, economist and political scientist Tobias Haas from the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies in Potsdam.

The workshop aims to create a space within the ECH for exchange on climate policy with a special focus on CDR (Carbon Dioxide Removal). Recent developments in this field will be presented and discussed. Following brief inputs on three different case studies (Austria, Germany and EU) we try to identify links as well as commonalities and differences of the three cases and the perspectives for progressive climate politics. The workshop is open to all interested ECH members.
