Aims, contents and method of the course

*** UPDATE ***

Dear students, we are happy to announce a SPECIAL LECTURE
30 November 2020
Dr. Renate Christ, Nobel peace prize awardee who worked for the IPCC will give a guest lecture:
"IPCC, COP, AR5, Kyoto Protocol, Paris Agreement, UNFCCC:
What is behind the abbreviations and how do you make agreements with 196 countries?"

*** UPDATE ***

Dear students, due to the COVID-19 lockdown lectures will be online-only starting November 2020.
You can join via u:stream. In addition the recorded lectures will be made available on moodle. We hope to see you in the Audimax again later this semester... we will keep you posted on the university measures.

Stay safe and healthy!!!

*** UPDATE ***

This lecture series is a sequel to last year's successful lecture series "Climate Change and Climate Crisis - Interdisciplinary Perspectives".
It will address current issues from various disciplines: climate science, geography, economics, cultural studies, political science, law, finance and many more.
This time, we will have a stronger focus on future perspectives and concepts, with ongoing research on sustainability, attribution studies, possible political, societal and management solutions (upcoming EU and Austrian laws, alternative traffic concepts, alternative economy, alternative land-use) and other best-case scenarios.

All of the speakers are well-known researchers in their respective fields and beyond. They are from various institutions: University of Vienna, Vienna University of Economics and Buisiness (WU), Technical University of Vienna (TU), Zentralanstalt für Meteorologie und Geodynmaik (ZAMG), University of Oxford, Univ.s of Mannheim, Flensburg and Potsdam. Many of the speakers participate in public debates about the probable effects of the current climate crisis and about possible remedies. The final program will be presented in due time.

This lecture series is open to all students of the University of Vienna and to the wider public. For more information about the eligibility of the series in your study programme, please contact the StudiesServiceCenter of your degree programme.

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, seatings in the lecture hall will be limited, but all lectures will be live-streamed in parallel and also be made accessible online afterwards. Some talks of external speakers will be given online.
