About CEC17

Climate engineering is becoming increasingly relevant within political, scientific, and cultural discussions of climate change. Building on the success of the first international climate engineering conference in 2014 (CEC14), by organizing CEC17 in October 2017, we strive to continue critical global discussions by bringing together the research, policy, and civic communities to discuss the highly complex and interlinked ethical, social and technical issues related to climate engineering.  The conference will provide a thorough and timely update on the latest developments in the field and facilitate discussions about the future development of CE research. CEC17 will also serve as an opportunity for a diverse audience of policy-makers, civil society organizations, and members of the public to critically engage with current research and the broader discussions that surround it.
