Professor Mike Young’s Harvard Chair Lecture on “Managing Transformational Change – What would a South Australian Carbon Trading System look like?” was presented at the University of Adelaide on the 10th of September 2015.
Mike 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.
