      Panel Discussion on October 12, 2023 at the Kulturzentrum TOLLHAUS and via Livestream

      It is mainly people in the global South who suffer under the effects of climate change. How do we as the international community deal with it? Tupoka Ogette, bestseller author and consultant for anti-racism action, is convinced that climate policy will only succeed when we provide for global justice. In her keynote starting the central panel discussion of the KIT Science Week “Global Rethinking: Innovations for More Climate Justice”, she directs attention to those who already are the most disadvantaged today. The following discussion also addresses the role of new technologies in climate protection.

      On the Podium
