After two very successful editions featuring story-teller Rob Hopkins and Prof. Per Espen Stoknes, the ManagEnergy Talk is back during the Covenant of Mayors Investment Forum – Energy Efficiency Finance Market Place! Dr Cara Augustenborg will deliver an inspirational speech on the topics of Climate Action and the transition to a fossil-free Europe. Join us on the 18th of February 2020!
The ManagEnergy Talks explore innovative, ambitious and transformative actions led by local/regional actors. It seeks to inspire others to spear head the drive for investment and action on sustainable energy. They are meant to serve as a forum for the discussion of new political initiatives, legislative processes or financial innovations from the different perspectives of all relevant stakeholders.
For its third edition, ManagEnergy has invited Dr Cara Augustenborg to talk about Europe’s Transition to a Fossil-free Economy. Dr Cara Augustenborg is an environmental scientist who lectures on climate change and the environment on UCD’s MSc programme on World Heritage Management and Conservation. In 2008, she was selected as the Irish Ambassador for a high-profile Arctic expedition sponsored by Ben & Jerry’s Climate Change College and the World Wildlife Fund. During the expedition she witnessed the effects of climate change first hand and as a result of this experience, she became an advocate for strong climate action, serving on the Board of Friends of the Earth Ireland since 2008. In 2013, Cara was selected as Ireland’s first Climate Leader by former U.S. Vice-President Al Gore. She graduated with a PhD in Environmental Science and Engineering from University of California, Los Angeles and following her graduation was a postdoctoral researcher at UCD’s School of Biology and Environmental Science.
