SNF DIALOGUES: Climate Change – Part 2

ATHENS — Scientists and members of the audience broached the changes to the climate that are happening now, the consequences we are already experiencing, and the need for humanity to adapt to a new reality.

Rapid changes in the global climate system, humanity’s adaptation to extreme weather events, rising temperatures, and climate justice are some of the issues the audience raised in opening the 46th SNF Dialogues discussion, on Climate Change.

On Wednesday, September 29, 2021, at the iconic building of the Academy of Athens—Greece’s first research institution—scientists and members of the community took part in an open, public dialogue. Setting the backdrop for this discussion were the extreme weather events of this past summer and the publication of the Sixth Assessment Report of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which confirms, beyond any doubt, that global warming is caused by human activity.
