Call for Papers 2021 Special Focus: Responding to Climate Change as an Emergency

Dear Colleague,
On behalf of the organizing committee, we are pleased to share with you the Call for Papers for the Thirteenth International Conference on Climate Change: Impacts & Responses (Online Only), UBC Robson Square, Vancouver, Canada, 8–9 April 2021.

The Climate Change: Impacts & Responses Research Network is brought together by a common concern for the science of, and social responses to, climate change. We seek to build an epistemic community where we can make linkages across disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries. As a Research Network, we are defined by our scope and concerns and motivated to build strategies for action framed by our shared themes and tensions. Online Only in 2021 // Blended 2022 Due to current travel restrictions—and uncertainty on the date these restrictions will end—we have decided to continue with only the online component of the 2021 conference. We are nonetheless excited to announce the online conference will be delivered on the CGScholar platform – developed by the Common Ground Media Lab, the research and technology arm of Common Ground Research Networks. We seek to build for our Research Network Members flexible, and at the same time resilient, spaces for communication, engagement, and participation.
