EPG Online

Environmental Politics and Governance (EPG) Online is a new webinar on environmental politics and governance. Building on the success of the annual EPG conference, EPG Online is an online seminar series dedicated to showcasing the latest research on the political, institutional, and societal dimensions of environmental challenges from a variety of disciplines.

It remains unlikely that there will be a return to the usual speaker series and conferences this year. Thus, we hope that EPG Online can serve as a great meeting place for those interested in environmental politics and governance to share cutting edge research and keep in touch with and meet colleagues virtually.

Time and Place

EPG Online seminars are generally held every two weeks on Thursdays 16:30 UK time (typically 8:30 West Coast, 11:30 East Coast, 17:30 Central Europe, 21:00 Delhi). Each seminar consists of two presentations with Q&As, each lasting 30 minutes.

The seminars are held online with Zoom. To receive the log-in information please sign up to the EPG Online mailing list.
