You, Me & the IPCC

December 17, 2018

A unique opportunity from PICS to engage with IPCC lead authors from around the world.

Event Details

  • Date: Wednesday, January 9th, 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
  • Location: Room 1300, SFU Segal Building, 500 Granville St, Vancouver, BC V6C 1W6
  • Cost: Free, register here to attend in person as seats are limited

The PICS-hosted event – introduced by PICS executive director Sybil Seitzinger – kicks off with a 20-minute panel presentation from six lead authors who will talk about the work of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and share their personal experiences.  Afterwards, a world café style dialogue will take place, where participants will have the chance to directly engage with all of the lead authors, ask questions and discuss the following topics:

1. How can early career scientists get involved with the IPCC?
2. How do authors deal with conflicting data, uncertainty and different perspectives?
3. How impactful is the work of the IPCC, and what are the benefits of getting involved?
4. How can the IPCC improve the communication aspect of its reports?

For UNBC and UVic participants interested in participating, the introductory panel will be live-streamed, and a webinar link will be provided to join the discussion with IPCC authors at the world café.  Please register here to attend remotely.
