Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative (C2G)

C2G publishes conversations with experts in three formats: C2GTalk, C2GDiscuss, and C2GLearn.

C2GTalk is a series of one on one interviews with influential practitioners and thought leaders to explore the governance challenges raised by emerging approaches to alter the climate. Discussions touch on a range of ethical, cultural, economic, and political issues, whilst staying grounded in the practical and personal experiences of our guests.

C2GDiscuss is a series of moderated in-depth conversations between diverse experts on some of the governance challenges of climate-altering approaches. They aim to encourage an engaging conversation about some of the toughest questions faced by decision-makers on climate change, now and in the future.

C2GLearn is a series of online events, designed to catalyze learning about climate-altering approaches and their governance. Featuring leading international experts and practitioners, events include both formal webinars and informal "campfire chats," convened regularly throughout the year, with opportunities for questions and answers.
