10: The Paris lifestyle – technologies and opportunities for climate protection

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
in englischer Sprache

The 2015 Paris Climate Protection Agreement that has been signed by 114 countries stipulates to limit global warming at no more than 1.5° C by 2100. This entails a rapid switch to renewable energies and a significant increase in energy efficiency. Based on current facts on climate change, international experts will present the future-oriented technology portfolio and climate-friendly lifestyles to reach the goals of the 2015 Paris Climate Protection Agreement. We will discuss the different views regarding opportunities and potentials for conflict resulting from the necessary technological, social and economic transformations.
