Formatted abstract
With the era of fossil fuels drawing to a close and the threat of global warming looming, specialists from around the world met at the University of Helsinki to discuss the idea of a Draft Treaty for a Global Greenhouse Gas Tax ( January, 2011). Hosted by the Centre of Excellence in Global Governance Research, this workshop explored the possibilities for the establishment of an international treaty that would eff ectively tax greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions. Th e workshop also recognized the innovative civilizational possibilities opened up by accelerating the transformation towards a post-fossil fuel era, including the need for global democracy.

Th e workshop has acted as a catalyst for future developments and a small group has formed to continue the work of developing the Draft Treaty for a gggt, with input from a wide array of specialists and activists. It is expected that an interdisciplinary volume focused on the political, economic, environmental and taxation issues of the gggt will be developed. In addition, advocacy for the gggt as an effective, internationally coordinated response to global warming will begin alongside further discussions and analysis of the gggt at the international level.
