Transcript of CliMates Research Training 2

Why a CliMates Research Training?
To improve the quality of our research
To improve our knowledge about climate change
To increase participation and activity in debates

Creating an innovative research framework based on
Achieving better publications
(form and substance)
But... what is "research"?
Approaching a topic from an innovative angle
Creating knowledge (analyses, studies, interviews etc...)
Transmitting knowledge

Why is research fundamental
in CliMates?

Because of CliMates' main goal:
finding and implementing innovative solutions to climate change.

=> Difficult to achieve it without research !

Because of CliMates Values...
CliMates gathers students that are
highly qualified
in the subject matter, and trains them, through research, to address and anticipate emerging climate change issues.

This year we have new modalities for Knowledge:
A better
selection of our members
More time to learn about and research a subject
This training!
Now that CliMates is a Think
and Do
Tank we still are a credible student organization...

... because
we are a think-and-do-tank that thinks before doing.
This year we have new modalities for innovation:
New & original
research possibilities.
as a keyword.
Research is used to predict and
limit the effects of climate change.

Solutions can be appropriate
for different places in the world.
The new CliMates value!
Research is beneficial for CliMates!
It valorizes
student expertise.
We are concerned by these topics

and learn how to face them.
Research leads us to work on new subjects and approaches.
Research leads us to stand up as a
constructive youth organization
... ... which tries to bring innovative solutions and avoids indulging in sterile criticism.
As CliMates, what can
Register and
actively participate
in one of the
research projects
The project descriptions are here: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BxPZ2-6uorrdMXp1c2Z0N2JfR28/edit
To register in one of the projects, please write to beatrice.cointe@climates.fr and zacharie.ter@climates.fr
academic credit
could be granted
for CliMates work
Recruit students
(of every discipline) to become CliMates
Contact experts
n your own country : contact alexis.metzger@climates.fr
follow our training
and share your ideas about it!
The research in CliMates
Be bold and creative!
Our goal is not to imitate experts but to proceed differently from the start.
The CliMates value-added:
International dimension
We have many different skills, professional experiences and academic backgrounds:
political scientists
An official partner: Idap
We have to find innovative comprehensive solutions by understanding, clarifying and mixing scientific, economic, social and cultural aspects of climate change and its impacts.
Idap (Idées d'après) is an organization aiming to
develop and experiment practical tools to encourage and facilitate interdisciplinary work within projects like CliMates.
Helping to build interdisciplinary teams

Connecting networks

Supporting interdisciplinary work
Complete yours and read
the CliMates Country Profiles of the others!

Building on the content of the CCPs, we have the intention to create a wiki (collaborative online encyclopaedia). Interested in joining this project?
Let us know at
This is not a CliMates researcher!
Research can be based on scientific books and papers. But you should aim to enrich your research with personal analysis, experiences or interviews.
Try to
make use of your background and your national context!

Don't forget that a paper written for CliMates could be a
university paper!

Ask your professors if academic credit could be granted for CliMates work...

And cr
eate relationships with potential
research tutors!
scientific experts
during the First CliMates International Summit was
for the elaboration of the CliMates Call for Action, as appreciated both by

and the

Scientific Committee

It is
very important
for you to contact
research tutors who can guide and advise you towards new research axes and ideas.
The Research Team has already met with quite a few experts over the past year. Maybe one of them is working in your field of research ?
Ask alexis.metzger@climates.fr
Who are experts?
Researchers, professors, journalists, politicians, NGO members, community leaders...
All those who have an experience in fighting climate change.
How is the CliMates research organized
since early-2013?

Several multicultural, multidisciplinary research groups work in parallel on different
specific CliMates projects.

Research groups have
varying numbers of participants.

Deadlines and milestones

on the project; but keep in mind our general days of action, eg. the
Earth Day
(April, 22nd)!

Each group has one
Project Coordinator
The 2013 CliMates Training
Each month, there will be one Prezi or other training document about:
An aspect of climate change (either a broad, transversal topic, or very focused on one question)
A methodological point
Do you feel you need training about a particular topic?
Send us an email at
Quantitative analysis, economic valuation, discourse analysis, community organizing, scientific knowledge, technical skills, sociological view...

We are engineers, physicists, chemists, lawyers, economists, geographers, political scientists, sociologists, etc.
Contributing and exchanging ideas,
knowledge, suggestions...

Part of research is sharing findings and contributing to the work of others. You're therefore encouraged to
submit posts for the CliMates Blog
or articles for the Press Review.
Please do not hesitate to write to us at

We have also launched transversal, long-term projects, for example on the Unsuspected Climate-Related Trends, which
always welcome occasional contributions.
if you'd like to know where you can
add your touch!
Project coordinators
for the progress of the research in the group:

They orchestrate research, ensure that everyone is doing their part and respecting deadlines, give impulses, and are in contact with the Research Team.

They also have a
seat in the Administrative Council,
where they represent their research group and participate in shaping the daily life and development of CliMates.

If you're thinking about becoming a Project coordinator, please contact:
CliMates highlights the benefits of sharing experiences and ideas, and materializes this in a collaborative research system.

This year we have new modalities for collaboration:
students from different academic & cultural backgrounds
collaborating within project teams...
... and different teams collaborating with each other.
collaboration with experts
will also be improved!
CliMates seeks new ways of research and negotiation, inciting ingenuity in solving global issues.
CliMates relies on a highly qualified student network supported by reknowned researchers, enhancing the depth and integrity of CliMates' student solutions publications.
Welcome to the First CliMates Research Training
Welcome to the Second CliMates Research Training
How to do research
in CliMates?

Because Climate change is a major environmental problem whose solutions are in a lot of other domains/sectors...
A great support : the CliMates Country Profiles
Don't forget :
Read the CCPs of the country of the members of your group : http://www.studentclimates.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=122&Itemid=685

Our research ambitions to help predict and limit the global effects of climate change, and must
take into account all perspectives
- wealthy, developing, vulnerable - to find solutions that work for everyone.
