From South to North, climate professor Kevin Anderson will be cycling around the country meeting citizens and local governments to discuss our opportunities and challenges in the face of a changing climate. A key part of the journey will be discussing Kevin’s research on carbon budgets and the role they can play in reaching the Paris agreement’s goal. Kevin will seek to bring out youth perspectives and leadership at different levels throughout the trip as a way to highlight the role all can play in addressing this issue. The journey takes place in the last two weeks of June terminating in Visby on July 2 at the start of the Almedalen week.<div>The Swedish Carbon Cycle is part of a larger project at CEMUS involving commisioned research on regional carbon budgets. <br /></div> <div><br /></div> <div>For more information, contact <a href="/sv/personal/Sidor/simon-davidsson.aspx">Simon Davidsson​</a> or visit the <a href=""><div style="display:inline !important">the Swedish Carbon Cycle website. </div></a></div> <a href=""> ​</a> seminar on Electromobility<p>Palmstedtsalen, university building, Palmstedtsalen, Campus Johanneberg</p><p>​Welcome to an Initiative seminar on Electromobility, arranged by Areas of Advance Transport and Energy.</p><span class="text-normal page-content"> <strong>What role will electric vehicles play in the future, for how we plan our cities, for our economy, our health and for the environment?</strong><br /><br />Having been around for more than a century, electric vehicles are now coming into use on a scale that may have major implications  on travel and transportation - by air, by water and by land.  Areas of Advance Transport and Energy are happy to welcome you to a full day at Chalmers, where we discuss different aspects on electromobility.<br /><br /><strong>WHEN</strong>: 13 September 2018<br /><strong>WHERE</strong>: Palmstedssalen, Chalmersplatsen 1, Göteborg<br /><em>The seminar will be in English.</em><br /><br /><strong>SESSIONS</strong><br /><ul><li>Visions for the future</li> <li>Liveable cities</li> <li>Policies, regulations and driving forces</li> <li>Technology aspects on electromobility</li></ul> <br />Registration is open! <br /><a href="">REGISTER &gt;&gt;</a><br /><br /><br />More information will be published on the </span><span class="text-normal page-content"><a href="/en/areas-of-advance/Transport/calendar/Initiative-seminar-2018/Pages/default.aspx">seminar web page &gt;&gt;</a></span><br /> and lecture – Gothenburg Lise Meitner Award 2018<p></p><p></p>​​Professor Chandrashekhar Joshi, University of California, Los Angeles, USA​, is the winner of the Gothenburg Lise Meitner Award 2018. He will visit the Gothenburg Physics Centre to receive the award and give the traditional award lecture in honour of the Austrian-Swedish physicist Lise Meitner. ​Professor Chandrashekhar Joshi receives the award &quot;<em>for conclusively demonstrating the advantages of using relativistically propagating plasma waves for electron acceleration</em>.&quot; Refreshments will be served after the lecture.​<br /><br /><br /><h3 class="chalmersElement-H3" style="font-family:&quot;open sans&quot;, sans-serif">About Chandrashekhar Joshi<img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Centrum/Fysikcentrum/Gothenburg%20Lise%20Meitner%20Award/Lise%20Meitner%202018/Porträtt_Chandrashekhar_Joshi170.jpg" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" alt="" style="margin:5px" /></h3> <div>Professor Chandrashekhar Joshi is <span style="background-color:initial">considered the Father of the experimental field of High-Gradient Plasmabased Charged Particle Acceleration – a paradigm shift for building accelerators of tomorrow. <br />In a career spanning four decades, Joshi and his colleagues have carried out pioneering experiments -using laser and ultra-relativistic electron pulses as drivers- on electron and positron acceleration using plasma waves thousands of times more rapidly than in a conventional accelerator.​</span></div> Sustainability Day 2018<p>TBA</p><p>​Chalmers Sustainability Day is back - Tuesday 23 October 2018.
