The Multidimensional Climate Emergency

  • GIER Webinar “The Climate Emergency” (October 15, 2020)

Climate change is one of the first environmental challenges to impact every single person on the planet. After several decades of scientific consensus and warning, we now acknowledge this is an emergency: the climate emergency. In 2018, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a report with some shocking, but realistic numbers: we need to reduce our emissions by 45% by the year 2030 to limit global warming by 1.5°C. The IPCC called for “rapid and far-reaching changes in all aspects of society.” Two years after this IPCC report, we brought together three experts with different backgrounds to have an interdisciplinary discussion around the climate emergency. Where are we now? And how do we move forward?
