On the 16th of December 2021, we will open our TransitionS Seminar Series with a session dedicated to energy, from 15 to 17.00 CET
We will have the pleasure to listen to Carelle Mang-Benza, Phd candidate at Western University, Canada, on “An energy transition with so many shades!” and Bregje van Veelen, Researcher at the University of Uppsala, Sweden, on “Decentralisation, democracy and the challenge of diversity: Becoming democratic through community energy“
The seminar will be held online only. Please register here
Carelle Mang-Benza is a PhD candidate at the University of Western Ontario. Her research examines the energy transition through the lens of justice and relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in Canada. Carelle joined the department of Geography and Environment with a B.A.Sc. and M.Sc. in Chemical Engineering and substantial international project and policy experience gained at the United Nations and US State Department.
Bregje van Veelen is a social researcher in the Department of Earth Sciences at Uppsala University (Sweden). Her work focuses on the governance of low carbon transitions. She investigates this theme through three strands of research: the role of sub- and trans-national actors; the socio-material dynamics of carbon lock-in; and the potential for low carbon transitions to contribute to political democratisation. She currently holds a Research Fellowship for her project ‘Post-carbon: Imagining the future to unmake the present’, and has previously worked as a Research Associate at Durham University, and a PhD researcher at the University of Edinburgh.
