Perm Summer School Gathers Leading Experts in Ecology and Climate Change

Perm Summer School ‘2021 in Climate, Impact and Blockchains has taken place in Perm, Russia.

This year, the Schools ‘program has been tightly linked to international and Russian ‘carbon agenda’ – from regulating CO2 emissions, carbon credits and markets as mechanisms for solving climate problems, to reforestation projects worldwide, as well as companies’ strategies for sustainable development and reduction of carbon footprint. The sessions schedule included a webinar by Kasper Kupperman, founder and CEO of the Green Branch, dedicated to implementing a reforestation project in Brazil.

“For European countries and business, environmental issues are more an investment, than just a news case, or charity. Reducing environmental impact is the new international economic standard. Companies are switching to renewable energy sources, recycling waste environmentally, counting CO2 emissions and recompensing negative consequences. A year ago, as we started our project in Austria, we could hardly imagine any ‘carbon agenda’ in Russia. Yet, today it is on the SPIEF and the front pages of the main media. We have talked about the importance of such change and its origins at our summer school,”

says Sergey Ivliev, head of the Cryptoeconomics and Blockchain Systems Lab, Perm State National Research University.
