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 presented their innovative research and bold visions, stimulating exchange and debate to tackle the greatest challenge of our time.
