Join us for a unique meeting that will explore the latest developments in both negative and positive tipping points, at scales from local to global, and from theory to practice.

Why attend?

  • Attendees will have the opportunity to shape future research and positive action to address tipping points risks and opportunities.
  • How long left in the ‘safe zone’? Hear the latest science on the proximity to global climate tipping points and risks in the biosphere and societies.
  • Improve the risk assessment of climate tipping points through early warning systems.
  • How to stay in the ‘safe zone’? Identify opportunities for transformative action through positive tipping points.
  • Develop new approaches for triggering positive tipping points and convene coalitions of partners and resources for implementation.
  • Through participating in the meeting you can join a growing alliance of partners that are working to develop the urgent and rapid solutions required to address the climate and ecological emergency through a socially just transformation.

Speakers will be from academia, industry, government, and Third Sector to highlight the need for rapid and transformative solutions as well as the risks and early warning requirements on negative tipping points.

Over three days participants will go on a journey from facing up to the risks from climate change tipping points to being empowered by the opportunities in triggering positive social tipping points. We will explore the impact and opportunities on different regions and sectors e.g. energy, transports, food and land systems.

Key themes are:

  • Climate tipping points risks and how to manage them
  • Interacting tipping points across climate, ecological and social systems
  • Identifying positive tipping points across sectors and societies
  • How to trigger positive tipping points

Target Audience

  • Researchers
  • Business and finance
  • Policy makers
  • Third sector Funders
  • Community leaders
