Invitation: Harvard Chair Lecture

Managing Transformational Change – What would a South Australian Carbon Trading System look like?

Presented by Professor Mike Young

HarvardMike Young spent the 2013/14 academic year in the Australian Studies Chair at Harvard University. While at Harvard, he began work on a book on the design and implementation of transformational environmental policy reforms. He also taught a course on the same subject in The Harvard Kennedy School of Government and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. The guidelines that emerge from his research suggest that more attention needs to be given to policy design and engagement.

In this lecture he will present these guidelines to develop a proposal that South Australia introduce a greenhouse gas emission trading system. Rather than copying schemes in place in other parts of the world, the one that emerges from Mike Young’s experience builds upon lessons emerging from successful transformational reforms. As a result, much more dynamic results can be expected. Economically positive outcomes for industry, the state and local communities should be possible.
