Understanding the role of cities in climate transformations

Posted on Posted in Events, Future homes

During the summer, SILCI PhD student Laurie Kerr participated in the two-week Bergen Summer Research School course “Cities in climate and energy transformations”.  This course explored the different roles cities and urban regions around the world can play in climate and energy transformations through a range of lectures, workshops, and discussions.  Laurie’s research is looking at the diffusion of peer-to-peer mobility innovations.  Participating in this course highlighted the range of contextual settings in which these innovations are used, and the role that cities, as actors, can play in their diffusion.
