MNKOM-lunch: Communicating climate change

Participants: Espen Larsen, Angela Morelli and Bjørn Samset Moderator: Mari Mjaaland

Numbers, facts and grey graphs have seemingly no effect on the public. Since we started gathering the evidence of climate change little has happened to our own habits and actions against the effects we all face. In many ways, the project of communicating climate change has been a huge flop. What happened? Why is it so difficult to talk about and understand climate change? How do we move forward? Is climate psychology and visualisation the way to go?

In this sofa debate we will hear from Communications Advisor Espen Larsen from the Norwegian Environment Agency, Science Communicator and Designer Angela Morelli, and Research Director Bjørn Samset from the Centre for Climate Research (CICERO).

The event is open to the public and will be streamed

 

MNKOM

MNKOM er det lille, store emnet på Det matematisk-naturvitenskapelige fakultetet (MN) ved UiO. Hvert vårsemester har vi gleden av å gjøre bachelor- og masterstudenter bedre i forskningsformidling og gi dem en smaksprøve på forskningsjournalistikk.

Som en del av emnet skal MNKOM-studentene blogge, skrive og holde foredrag. To ganger i måneden inviterer de til MNKOM-lønsj i foajeen i Realfagsbiblioteket, velkommen til faglig påfyll! MNKOM-bloggen finner du på Titan
