You are invited to attend a lunchtime seminar with Katharine Hayhoe on 16 October 2023 at 12pm in the 'große Kuppel' of PIK's main building on the Telegraphenberg campus (A31).

Katharine Hayhoe is Chief Scientist for the Nature Conservancy (one of the largest environmental oragnisations in the world), Professor at Texas Tech University and one of the most respected and prolific science communicators on the topic of climate change in the United States.  She will provide her view on what is needed from science today to drive a paradigm shift in international action on climate change.  PIK's own Professor Stefan Rahmstorf will provide an introduction and the lecture will be followed by a Q&A session with both guests, in which the experiences with climate change communication in the US and Germany will be shared.
