DIALOGUES: Climate change: Reality, use and abuse of the term

Venue: Athens, Greece
Date: 29 January 2020

The effects of our present climate emergency are becoming increasingly evident in innumerable aspects of life on Earth. Increasing global temperatures, rising sea levels, extreme weather phenomena, ocean acidification, melting ice, and depletion of glaciers threaten food production, make certain coastal areas uninhabitable, drive species to extinction, and lead to the forcible displacement of human and animal populations. The SNF DIALOGUES open 2020 with a discussion that concerns us all. On Wednesday, January 29 at 18:30​ we meet at the Goulandris Natural History Museum (Othonos 100, Kifissia) to talk about climate change. We will review the scientific evidence, discuss the roles of technology and education in tackling climate change, and examine use and abuse of the term “climate change, ” now ubiquitous in social activism and the international political agenda.
