Climate Talks: back to Copenhaguen, ECSITE conference

June 06 2019 @ 12:00 PM - 1:15 PM

In 2009 we were in Copenhagen for COP15, representing science centres and museums in the fight against climate change. Ten years later, we find ourselves back in the same city. And this time, it’s for crisis talks. The IPCC’s latest report was crystal clear: cut carbon emissions as much as possible and as fast as possible, to mitigate the effects of climate change. What concrete action can we, as science engagement organisations, take now to rise to this challenge?

The session will start with a brief summary of the "State of the Climate". We will then launch a fishbowl discussion. We have a few speakers planned, but this is a fishbowl and so all participants will be welcome to take any available seat, allowing the conversation to flow. To request a spot, they can wave a coloured card to show their stakeholder profile, allowing us to welcome aboard a broad range of perspectives.

Our facilitators will lead us through four key topics:

  • State of the Climate: our reactions
  • Glimmers of hope (1): current good practices in public engagement
  • Glimmers of hope (2): current good practices with policymakers and other stakeholders
  • Looking ahead: what next?
Objectives
  • Insight into thoughts on the topic from leaders in science engagement
  • A chance to reflect on our failures in climate engagement
  • Ideas for activities and projects
