Mercosur Post Copenhagen Seminar
19th to 20th March 2010

The “Mercosur Post Copenhagen” Seminar, a capacity-building seminar, took place on 19 and 20 March 2010 in the Central Offi ce Auditorium of Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (UFSC) in Florianópolis. The seminar was a forum for public administrators, diplomats, parliamentarians, businessmen and academics to discuss renewable
energies, regional integration and to learn what is being proposed in Brazil in order to face the consequences of climate change. In the seminar, Guilherme Cassel, Agrarian Development Minister, talked about the generation of green jobs. Speakers of the Mercosur Parliament and from institutions dedicated to regional integration, diplomacy and renewable energies represented the four MERCOSUR countries.

The seminar was an initiative of Regional Integration Center – Cefir Uruguay, the Instituto IDEAL, Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC) and the University of the South of Santa Catarina (UNISUL)/project JELARE – Joint European Latin American Universities Renewable Energy Project. Climate change is a permanent issue on the global economic and political agenda. The recent disasters
on the American continent and also in Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul have made action necessary to mitigate and adapt to climate change. However, such actions have no effect if only done locally; they must be integrated between states and even between countries.
