Beyond Oil 2019: Deep and Rapid Transformations

October 16 - 17, 2019

Society is inevitably moving beyond oil. However, current rates of change are well below what is necessary to limit global warming to two degrees or less. Low and zero-carbon pathways will require systematic changes in economies, polities and societies. This will affect areas of the world and portions of populations unevenly. Furthermore, existing inequalities hinder the capacity for urgent change. Sustainable transformation must thus simultaneously address the geophysical and socioeconomic challenges of the early 21st century.

How can we accelerate transformation?

Beyond Oil 2017: Mobilizing alternative futures

October 25 - 26, 2019

Society is inevitably moving beyond oil. The direction that this transformation will take is still highly uncertain. Transformations to societies beyond oil involve deliberate choices that lead to different outcomes with regards to power, justice, inequality and human-nature relations.

Beyond Oil 2015: Geographies of climate and energy transformation

October 21 - 22, 2019

Society is inevitably moving beyond oil. Are we moving beyond oil? How are climate and energy transformations experienced in different parts of the world? What measures do we need to take to move our energy systems in a renewable direction?
