Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Local, National, International Energy (and Other) Events Listings for January, 2022

by gmoke Thu Jan 6th, 2022 at 10:59:33 PM EST

These kinds of events are happening all over the world every day and most of them, now, are webcast and archived, sometimes even with accurate transcripts.  Would be good to have a place that helped you access them.

Anybody know of something like that?

The local listings I did for over a decade (what I did and why I did it at http://hubeventsnotes.blogspot.com/2013/11/what-i-do-and-why-i-do-it.html) could go global if somebody hasn't done it already.

I'm thinking about doing something like this monthly but we'll see.

The Big Bold Jewish Climate Fest
January 10-14, 2022 / Tu BiShvat 5782
https:/www.jewishclimatefest.org

Make Climate Action a Central Moral Priority of The Jewish Community
The Big Bold Jewish Climate Fest is a free, (mostly) online, collaborative festival by and for people who want to activate Jewish values to move the needle on climate change. We believe climate action should be a central moral issue of our community, and together we can make it happen.  Anchored in the holiday of Tu BiShvat, the Fest combines theory, practice, and action that we can carry in our personal, professional, and volunteer lives throughout the year.
The Fest is a combination of MainStage events curated by our program committee (including representatives from Hazon and Dayenu), and a groundswell of community-produced events from Fest partners and experts.

ON TREES: A CONVERSATION WITH PETER WOHLLEBEN, JESSICA J. LEE, AND SUMANA ROY
Tuesday, January 11
1:00pm
https:
/yff.yale.edu/event/trees-conversation-peter-wohlleben-jessica-j-lee-and-sumana-roy

The Forest School at the Yale School of the Environment and Orion Magazine present a second event in a series to celebrate Orion's new anthology, Old Growth. "On Trees" will feature a conversation between Peter Wohlleben, Jessica J. Lee, and Sumana Roy, three authors whose work embodies the language of trees. Wohlleben's Hidden Life of Trees illuminates the discreet social network of forests; Lee's Two Trees Make a Forest finds history in the canopy; and Roy's How I Became a Tree finds the shadows of branches throughout literature and philosophy. Together, they will discuss cultural constructs of forests and how disconnected those are from the growing reality of monoculture. Moderating the event is Mary Evelyn Tucker, co-author of Journey of the Universe and co-founder of Yale's Forum on Religion and Ecology.

Biodiversity conservation, zoonotic diseases, and human security in Africa two years into COVID-19
Friday, Jan 14, 2022
10:00 AM EST - 11:30 AM EST
https:/www.brookings.edu/events/biodiversity-conservation-zoonotic-diseases-and-human-security-in-a frica-two-years-into-covid-19

Join the conversation on Twitter using #NonstateArmedActors
Far more extensive and robust conservation of natural habitats, smarter and more diligent monitoring of legal wildlife trade, and suppression of poaching and wildlife trafficking are necessary for preventing and minimizing the emergence and spread of zoonotic diseases. Yet the COVID-19 pandemic has also revealed how vulnerable conservation and income for local communities and protected areas are to downturns in tourism.

On January 14, the Brookings Institution's Africa Security Initiativeand Initiative on Nonstate Armed Actors will host a panel discussion exploring the following questions: What have the effects of COVID-19 been on conservation in Africa and poaching and wildlife trafficking as well as legal wildlife trade? What effective response measures have been adopted or need to be developed going forward? And has the COVID-19 become an impetus for radically intensified protection of biodiversity and led to genuine transformation toward "One Health," or has it become not only a tragedy, but also a wasted opportunity for biodiversity conservation and human security?

After their remarks, panelists will take questions from the audience. Viewers can submit questions via email to events@brookings.edu or Twitter using #NonstateArmedActors.

Global Equity During Pandemics: Designing a New Paradigm
Thursday, January 20, 2022, 9 - 10:30 a.m.
https:/harvard.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_NnGoMM_iSFWFHM_9ihFIkQ

Ongoing global Covid-19 vaccine and therapeutic inequities threaten to prolong and exacerbate the pandemic for all countries. As advocates, academics, and policymakers alike call for the U.S. and other wealthy nations to share these lifesaving resources with the world, it is prudent to consider the lessons learned from the HIV pandemic that can be translated into this current moment. PEPFAR and the experiences of HIV health workers offer a roadmap and over 20 years of learnings for implementing vaccine and therapeutic scale-up and delivery efforts in low resource settings. On January 20th, the Harvard Global Health Institute and the Harvard University Center for AIDS Research grand rounds event will bring together members of the HIV research and advocacy communities to critically reflect upon applicable lessons for approaching Covid-19 healthcare delivery and identify necessary steps for a paradigm shift in how the world responds to global health crises. The grand rounds will include a 1-hour panel discussion between leaders of the global HIV response and a 30-minute fireside conversation between Dr. Tony Fauci and Dr. John Nkengasong. These conversations will be oriented towards practical, timely steps that advocates, academics, and policymakers can take to advance equity in this and future global health crisis. Register today to join us for what promises to be insightful and urgently needed dialogue.

Climate Change, Girl's Education and Gender Equity
Location: Online
https:
events.columbia.edu/cal/event/showEventMore.rdo
Join Columbia Climate Conversat
ions for our last event of the semester: Climate Change, Girl's Education, and Gender Equity! This panel will feature four incredible panelists working at the intersections of gender equity and climate change.
The UN reports that 80% of people displaced by climate change are women. This means women and girls are experiencing a disportionate amount of the consequences of climate change already through natural disasters, food shortages, and scarce resources. The panelists will delve into how environmental justice intersects with the fight for gender equity. We will discuss how climate change affects women and girl's access to education, healthcare, and the resources they need to succeed. Additionally, we will talk about how women and girls are taking a stand and fighting for a better environment and for their rights.

This conversation will be hosted over Zoom and will be moderated by Columbia undergraduate student and Columbia Climate Conversations creator, Lauren Ritchie. The event is open to anyone who RSVPs, not limited to only Columbia students.

The event targets professionals, researchers and thought leaders in the fields of energy efficiency in buildings and renewable energy.

A detailed agenda will follow shortly.

This program is sponsored by the Export Initiative "Energy Solutions - Made in Germany" of the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Action which aims to:
