Climate Change – How Can We Stop It?

Thursday, February 7, 2019, 6:00 pm

Opening event of the Knowlegde Knows No Limits lecture series at CEU

2018 was the warmest year ever recorded in Hungary. Every year, hundreds of people die in the country due to severe heat waves.
According to the latest UN climate report, we only have 10-20 years left.
What comes after?
- by the end of the century polar bears and several other species could be extinct
- long-forgotten epidemics return, new diseases appear
- Venice and other cities might vanish underwater
- famine and impoverishment, political and social conflicts
This is the last moment to act.

Can we still stop climate change? Our answer is yes.

Looking for the answers during the evening are:
Diana Ürge-Vorsatz, physicist, professor at CEU, Vice President of the Nobel Peace Prize winner Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Directorate,
Csaba Kőrösi, Director of the Directorate for Environmental Sustainability at the Office of the President of the Republic
Réka Nagy, author of Ö (Ecomom) and a number of books on sustainability

CEU kicks off the open lecture series Knowledge Knows No Limits in February. CEU professors, in cooperation with leading Hungarian experts, as well as well-known public figures will discuss the most exciting and up-to-date scientific findings and their direct impact on our everyday life. During the series three lectures will cover topics that affect all of us and in which our scientists have achieved world-class results: global warming, network science, and cognitive development in early childhood. The lectures will be held in Hungarian, with simultaneous English interpretation.

Please make sure you arrive well in time. Latecomers will be seated in another room and will only be able to follow the live stream.
