Ydin overview of the panel discussion on great power responsibility for climate change

Ydin magazine published an article “Kuka kantaa vastuun ilmastosta?” (Who bears the responsibility for the climate?) about the book launch and panel discussion that took place on 7th of August at Tiedekulma.

China has begun to regard itself as a great power and perhaps as a leader in relation to climate change – as long as the economy does not suffer. At the same time, the old great powers Russia and the US seem to map out emission reductions. Experts discussed in Helsinki what does the great power responsibility for climate change mean in practice.

The article provides a good summary of the discussion and can be read in Finnish here.
