It’s almost time: the Public Climate School is back!

The motto: “Climate Education for All”
The goal: to bring climate education to Germany’s schools and universities.

In order to join the nationwide movement, Students for Future Freiburg has planned exciting lectures, ranging from “Can We Still Be Saved?” and “The Fate of Carbon Dioxide in the Climate System”.

Regardless of whether you are a pupil, student or an interested person, you are welcome to join us for thought-provoking lectures.

The global warming caused by man-made climate change is altering the basic geophysical state of Earth and its ecosystems. It can and must be assumed that, through this increased warming, the possibilities of mankind to adapt to these changes are steadily decreasing.

The risk of being exposed to uncontrollable changes is increasing. Further, these uncontrollable changes in the climate are associated with a large number of climate-physical tipping points which could further trigger the rapid warming of the Earth.

So-called social tipping points [soziale Kippelemente] are considered to be an important means of inducing disruptive climate conservation actions; they could be a major contributor to the much-needed mitigation of current climatic changes. With respect to the short timeline remaining to achieve the climate conservation goals defined by the global community, one of the key questions is whether and/or how the social tipping points can be triggered.
