Heading toward extinction - what can we do about it?

In October 2022, the intergovernmental panel of climate change (IPCC) stated: “The climate crisis calls for a rapid transformation of societies, yet the international community is falling far short of the Paris goals, with no credible pathway to 1.5°C in place. Only an urgent system-wide transformation can avoid climate disaster.”
Yet, this sense of urgency is not reflected by governments and institutions. It is increasingly evident that the existing power structures and economic systems in place are insufficient to address climate change. This opens the question what citizens and members of academic institutions can and should do?

Join us for a discussion about our agency and responsibility in times of planetary emergencies.
