Following a summer dominated by extreme weather events worldwide and an inexpressible national environmental disaster in Greece, there’s one question on everyone’s minds: is there time to reverse the destruction humans have brought on the planet, or are we heading towards an inevitable and irreversible global climate crisis? On Wednesday, September 29 at 18:30 (EET), the next SNF DIALOGUES webcast invites the public and representatives of the scientific community to a livestreamed open discussion at snfdialogues.org about the future of humanity on a quickly warming planet. Following the first SNF DIALOGUES discussion on climate change that took place in January 2020, this event will continue the conversation on the effects of climate change and ways we can take action.
Taking part in the discussion will be:
• Niki Evelpidou, Professor in the Faculty of Geology and Geoenvironment, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens
• Prodromos Zanis, Professor in the Department of Meteorology and Climatology, School of Geology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki
• Christos Zerefos, Secretary General of the Academy of Athens and Climate Envoy for Greece
Birgit Njaastad, Antarctic Programme Leader at the Norwegian Polar Institute, will share insights on retreating polar ice through a pre-recorded interview that will be broadcast during the live event.
The DIALOGUES are curated and moderated by Anna-Kynthia Bousdoukou and are held through journalism nonprofit iMEdD (incubator for Media Education and Development).
