Transformation, adaptation and mitigation for a 1.5 degree global warming

FOL attends one more year the BC3-UPV/EHU Summer School on Climate Change

18/07/2019 -

The Basque Center for Climate Change (BC3) and the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) have organized this year the 10th edition of the BC3-UPV/EHU Summer School on climate change: “Transformation, adaptation and mitigation for a 1.5 degree global warming”. This-three day course was held in Bilbao from the 8th to the 10th of July 2019.

The BC3-UPV/EHU summer school is offering an up-to-date picture of the ongoing climate change challenges. This year, the focus has been on the implications of the report by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released last October 2018. This report states that urgent action is needed in the next twelve years for global warming to be kept to 1.5°C in order to avoid catastrophic environmental and economic consequences. The debate focused around transformation, adaptation and mitigation and one key message was that we currently have the tools to reach the climate stabilization goal. It is indeed scientifically solvable, but is it socially realistic?

Being knowledgeable about climate change challenges is really important to be able to react consequently and this was a great opportunity for FOL member Iratxe Rubio to keep track of the issue.
