    Larissa, Brazil, and sustainable development

    How can 'hard-to-abate sectors' come together to develop a low-carbon future? What is the role of the BRICS, especially Brazil, in global environmental and climate governance? What role do you foresee for the BRICS in international climate change negotiations? How to improve energy access and the switch to renewables while reducing inequalities to make the energy transitions just and fair?

    Larissa Basso will discuss with us these relevant issues that are often left out of the discussion.

    Neelke, ethics, and water engineering

    Neelke, ethics, and water engineering

    Why is it important to include an ethical analysis in the process of developing new technologies? What does an ethical analysis of engineering reveal compared to an analysis which does not consider ethical, philosophical, or moral dimensions? These are the type of questions that are discussed in this episode, for which I have invited prof. Neelke Doorn from TU Delft. She is distinguished Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Professor of ‘Ethics of Water Engineering’ at the Department of Ethics and Philosophy of Technology. Furthermore, she is the Director of Education of the Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management.
