Climate Reality - Causes, Effects, Solutions

Description
“Our house is on fire” - these are the words of the teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg.

The Amazon rainforest fire, typhoons Faxai and Hagibis in Japan, the flooding of Venice, and heatwaves in Europe - all of them represent our new climate reality. Climate change is no longer a vague threat from a distant future, it is happening right now, jeopardizing our social and economic systems.

At this event, we will review the scientific facts behind climate change, discuss the impacts of climate change on health, food systems, migration, and economy, and brainstorm on potential solutions that everyone can be the part of.

About Climate Reality:

In 2006, Nobel Laureate and former US Vice President Al Gore got the world talking about climate change with the Academy Award-winning film An Inconvenient Truth.

It was just the beginning of a climate revolution. Later that year, he founded what would become The Climate Reality Project to move the conversation forward and turn awareness into action all across the Earth.

Today, as Climate Reality, we’re a diverse group of passionate individuals who’ve come together to solve the greatest challenge of our time. We are activists, cultural leaders, organizers, scientists, and storytellers committed to building a sustainable future together.
