About the event
Climate Change and rising global temperatures are no longer only concerns of scientists and small groups of environmental activists. The public seems to know, there is something happening to this planet and that there is a need for action. More and more people become part of movements such as Fridays for Future or Extinction Rebellion. Sustainability is the new focus, from personal lifestyle to business development. However, we find ourselves in discussions with people who believe climate change is nothing but a hoax, whilst certain regions in Europe and all around the world are already experiencing its impacts. Politicians seem to care more about being reelected than bringing innovative and strict policies for climate protection on the way. But is that really the case? Where do we stand in Europe? What does the 1.5°C-goal mean and how does it differ from other futures?
In this seminar we want to explore scientific information on what climate change actually means and what impacts goalposts like the 1.5°C goal have. What is our vision of a sustainable future? We want to ask ourselves how climate action can look like and find leverage points for positive changes. We will find out how we can influence these developments in our own lifestyle but also whose responsibility sustainability is in general. What else can we do, other than using reusable straws and knitting cute bracelets from recycled yoghurt cups?
