Rapeseed in cracked soil

Welcome to an open webinar on climate change. In 2021 and 2022, the IPCC will present its sixth assessment report, and SLU takes the launch as an opportunity to discuss the current scientific knowledge about climate change in a series of conversations.

This open webinar focuses on climate change challenges and cross-disciplinary ways forward. The basis for the discussion is the IPCC assessment report AR6 Climate Change 2021: The Physical Science Basis

The program will comprise 3–4 speakers that represent different disciplinary perspectives on climate change challenges, and who can point on ways forward and reflect on cross-disciplinary and transdisciplinary angles.

We begin with an initial introduction on the report and short keynotes by the speakers, which is then followed by a panel discussion.
