The St. James’s Palace Nobel Laureate Symposium was held in May 2009 at St. James's Palace and The Royal Society in the United Kingdom. The Symposium provided a unique opportunity for Nobel Laureates from across the disciplines to gather with world experts in climate change and a small number of policy makers and global business leaders. Together they contributed their ideas and authority to some of the world’s most pressing challenges. The focus of the Symposium was the climate crisis and its implications, particularly in the context of the economic and development challenges facing the world.

The conclusions have been released as the ‘St. James’s Palace Memorandum’; this will form the basis of an extensive engagement strategy – with policy-makers and the wider scientific and business communities internationally – in the lead up to the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, as well as to provide a longer term and significant impact on the public discussion of climate change.
