Working group on carbon markets at YHYS fall colloquium

Together with researchers from the University of Tampere and the University of Eastern Finland, Climakedo researchers organized a working group at the Finnish Society for Environmental Social Science’s fall colloquium. The theme of the working group was the problematization and enquiry into the growing carbon and biodiversity markets.

Our researchers were involved in two presentations. The first one examined citizen’s views on voluntary carbon offsetting based on a nationally representative survey, showing that offsetting is still a relatively unknown and unsettled phenomenon amongst consumers. The second presentation analysed carbon offsetting from an infrastructural perspective, focusing on the types of continuities and disjunctions that are present in the post Paris Agreement climate negotiations.
