As the information revolution continues, climate change must remain high on public and political agendas around the world. Information plays a crucial role in dealing with climate change and thereby empowering governments and citizens to take action. As a result, the analytical concept of Informational governance is gaining increasing importance as it has the potential to explain societal changes appearing in the Information age, resulting from new patterns of information flows.
Between 20-21 September 2021 we will bring together top-notch international scholars working on these issues, in a two day online workshop. The main aim of this workshop is to identify the emerging issues in this new interdisciplinary field, with a particular focus on climate action science. A proposal for a special issue on “Informational Governance and Climate Action” will be sent to a renowned international scientific journal.
