COACCH project and the other organisers of this COP side event would like to invite you to join “The Journey from Scientific insights to Societal Action” under the topic “Science, technology, research and innovation”. Our excursion will take place virtually on Monday 1st November 2021 for one hour, at 11:30am (GMT+1, Glasgow time) 07:30 EDT / 11:30 UTC / 12:30 CET / 13:30 EET / 14:30 MSK / 19:30 CST / 22:30 AEDT (note: change to Winter Time on 31 October)
We will take a leap of faith and travel from one end of the spectrum to the other, from natural to social sciences, from theory to practice. The journey will show you how and why science and knowledge need to be shared, in the context of Climate Change and the COP. The event includes members from a interdisciplinary variety of organisations and projects:
- CMCC, the Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change presenting outcomes of the projects COACCH, SOCLIMPACT, and PESETA
- ECRA, the European Climate Research Alliance – a network of climate scientists of Europe
- EUA, the European University Association represents more than 800 universities and national rectors’ conferences in 48 European countries
- IIASA, the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis presenting ENGAGE project results
- CPA, the Climate Psychology Alliance – a network exploring the connection between climate science and the human dimension.
To tackle climate change effectively, it is important that all levels of society have an understanding of climate change, and its risks and impacts. This session takes a journey from new scientific research findings about netzero futures and climate change impacts, discussing recent developments in communication, education and public engagement, to arrive at policy and action. We want to highlight the importance of scientific work in the context of societal needs and human behaviour; how do science, politics and decisionmakers, universities, and all persons involved in Climate Change understand, create and deal with new information and knowledge. The expected outcome of this event is to clarify the relationships and strategies between the stakeholders and to find possible solutions to better deal with Climate Change.
