Join us for an open discussion about climate change and economic inequality’s relationship with Dr. Ilona M. Otto [PIK], Nika Dubrovsky and Lea Irmisch.
The research conducted by PIK [Postdam Institute for Climate Impact Research] shows how climate change are related to the economic inequality in our society. The talk and the discussion would be held in a framework of a project A4kids Lab "What is wealth?". Together with the children involved in the "Koruna"/A4Kids Lab project, social workers, artists, and anybody who wish to participate, we will attempt, not to find answers, but to ask questions.
