This year’s overarching theme is ‘Climate Change – From Knowledge to Action’.

Extreme weather systems, rising sea levels, changes in ocean geo- and biochemistry, species extinction, poor air quality; the devastating impacts of climate change caused by increased levels of atmospheric CO2 are already being felt by ecosystems and societies across the planet. Now, rapid, coordinated and wide-scale action is urgently needed if complete global climate breakdown is to be avoided. But how do we move from knowledge to action?

At Helmholtz Horizons 2019 our scientists will present their innovative research and bold visions, stimulating exchange and debate to tackle the greatest challenge of our time.


The Helmholtz Horizons Symposium 2019 on ‘Climate Change – from knowledge to action’ is taking place at the Futurium in Berlin on the 6th November 2019 . Helmholtz scientists will present their cutting-edge research and bold visions in a series of inspiring and thought-provoking talks. Together we will explore the latest results and ideas concerning the causes, consequences and solutions of climate change, and engage in stimulating discussions and debate with other leaders and decision makers from the worlds of science, politics and business.
