COP21 Ministers Urged to Partner with Universities, Colleges and Students

COP21 Paris 2015The collective voice of the world’s universities, colleges and students will be heard at COP21. The United Nations Climate Change Conference takes place in Paris, France during the first week of December.

A global alliance of tertiary and higher education sustainability networks jointly issued an Open Letter urging Ministers and Governments to acknowledge and strengthen the research and education role that universities and colleges play in addressing climate change. With networks on every continent pledging signatures, the global alliance already represents more than 3000 universities and colleges worldwide.

The Open Letter celebrates and confirms the critical role universities and colleges play in finding and implementing solutions towards climate change mitigation and adaptation and places it in the context of addressing wider issues of sustainability, including social and economic policies and practices.

Call for Papers: Sustainable Stormwater Management

Springer: Climate Change ManagementCall for Papers:
Sustainable Stormwater Management - Innovative Approaches and Best Practice to Cope with Global Change

To be published as part of the Climate Change Series (Springer)

The sustainable management of stormwater is a matter of central interest to muncipalities worldwide. By management of stormwater it is meant how to manage surface runoff in a way that it prevents floods on the one hand, but also the wastage of water on the other. Even though in rural areas precipitation is often use for irrigation, a major problem is seen in urban areas, where run-off cannot easily be stored or infiltrate, due to various reasons. The European-funded project Baltic Flows for instance, is seeking ways to foster rainwater monitoring and management in Baltic Sea catchment areas, and to handle storm water management, whereas the project AFRHINET is focusing on rainwater harvesting for irrigation purposes in APC countries.

New Students' Representative: Falco Richardson

Christian Falco RichardsonHello. My name is Falco. I am English and have lived in England until the Autumn of last year, when I decided to move to Uppsala in Sweden to study for a Masters in Sustainable Development.

My previous studies include my undergraduate degree in International Relations and Global Development, where I cultivated an interest in the politics of the environment.

I enjoy playing the guitar and spending my time outdoors. I am also fond of playing basketball, having over the years had the pleasure of playing with more than a few coming from Latvia and Lithuania.

I have a broad interest in issues about the environment and sustainable development, although I am mainly interested in and passionate about environmental protection: natural resource management and conservation, and “green” economics, for example environmental and ecological economics.

I am grateful and positive about being given the role of student representative for the Baltic University Programme. I hope that whilst in my tenure of the position I can be of service in lending a voice to students active and present within the BUP network, and also aid them in making greater use of it. I think it is important and fruitful for students if they are able to communicate and potentially collaborate on projects with other students who come from outside of their home countries and respective universities. Lastly, I am enthusiastic about being able to be part of a network that works toward sustainable development in the Baltic region.
