CEP at European Environment Agency expert meeting

CEP at European Environment Agency expert meeting

CEP’s Owen White has been invited as an external expert to participate in a European Environment Agency (EEA) forward-looking information and services (FLIS) expert workshop to take place in Copenhagen, Denmark 21-22 March. 

Owen will be presenting a methodology CEP has developed related to downscaling the implications of global megatrends at the national scale.  The method is intended to enable EU member states to identify and prioritise potential implications of global megatrends, link these with national environmental information and indicators, and help identify emerging environmental policy needs.  The workshop will include the inception of national case studies to test and refine the method.

CEP has been contracted to develop this methodology by the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN) as part of an ongoing project, and under the aegis of the EEA network of environmental foresight experts.
