How much do the scientific facts really matter in addressing the climate emergency?

Do we already know enough to set the right goals and timeframes for action? Is the climate advocacy movement on the right track to achieve climate justice and global protection?

Resistance to closer analysis of the climate reality can lead to a dangerous underestimation of the problem and jeopardise the formation of sound strategies. Deep-seated fears about the extent of the crisis, and concerns about complex solutions, can fuel serious doubts about our ability to respond in time. Yet, to succeed, we need to re-examine the facts with fresh rigor and unrestrained honesty to form action at a level that will give us our best chance of local and global protection.

Join some of the world’s leading climate scientists and expert analysts for a deep dive into the depths of major impacts, risks, and actions that will shape climate advocacy in the decade ahead.
