SPM44 | Local politics vs intergovenmental processes: A round table discussion on how to engage across the policymaking spectrum


Scientists can engage with policy on many different levels – from the local city level all the way up to intergovernmental processes and treaties! With so many options, how do scientists who want to engage in policy decide where to dedicate their time? And once they decide, how do they start engaging?

This round table discussion will introduce you to experts who have worked across the spectrum of governance levels. They will compare the benefits of working on different scales and also talk about some of the pitfalls and challenges. Join us to find out what it’s really like to interact with local politicians and how it feels to be sitting in a meeting that dictates global climate targets!
