At the occasion of the French Presidency of the European Union, the conference on "Social sciences and humanities facing the climate change challenges" will aim at discussing the collective challenges associated to climate change, and to make policy recommendations.
The Social sciences and humanities (SSH) community is much divided on the way to approach long-term environmental challenges, given what hard sciences (climatology, oceanography, chemistry,...) tell them.
Therefore, general concepts (with different meanings in different disciplines of SSH) will be discussed such as:
Corporate social responsibility
Governance of Climate Policy
International Environmental Agreements
