#ClimateChange is widespread, rapid, & intensifying — IPCC (@IPCC_CH) August 9, 2021

A panel of scholars will discuss the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report released in August 2021. This landmark report has captured international attention by painting a bleak picture of the planet's future, warning that hotter global temperatures are now unavoidable. The panel will discuss the implications of the IPCC report for Europe, considering what steps might still be taken to prevent its most catastrophic possible future scenarios.
