Symposium about Climate Change and Biodiversity Loss

On June 5th, 2024, from 17:30 to 19:30 at Janskerkhof 2-3, Room 013 in Utrecht, the Urios Symposium Committee will host its very last symposium before the summer on indisputably THE biggest threat facing our planet – namely *climate change and biodiversity loss*. This symposium is not about adding to your ‘climate anxiety’ or ‘doomsday fear’. Instead, brace yourself for a captivating exploration of the advancements in the battle against climate change and biodiversity loss. 

The interplay between climate change and biodiversity loss is profound. Ecosystem destruction releases more carbon dioxide than burning fossil fuels, exacerbating climate change. Biodiversity loss, in turn, weakens our natural defenses against its impacts. With one million species threatened with extinction, our planet’s ecosystems are under immense strain. 

Moreover, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has recently issued Grand Chamber rulings on three climate change cases concerning the impact of global warming on living conditions and health. We will delve into these cases and explore their profound implications.

This symposium will explore such challenges from a scientific, legal and criminological perspective. Regardless of whether you are a science enthusiast, a legal expert, or from another discipline, this symposium is tailored to suit your interests. Do not miss this opportunity to gain valuable insights and join the discussion on how we can protect the future of our planet. Save the date and be part of the solution!
