PICS invites students, emerging researchers and faculty to a unique opportunity to engage with and learn from IPCC lead authors from around the world.
The event – introduced by PICS executive director Sybil Seitzinger – will begin 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:
- How can early career scientists get involved with the IPCC?
- How do authors deal with conflicting data, uncertainty and different perspectives?
- How impactful is the work of the IPCC, and what are the benefits of getting involved?
- How can the IPCC improve the communication aspect of its reports?
Event starts at 7pm: Refreshments will be served at 6:30 pm.
Save your seat as space is limited, please register to attend in person.
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 to attend remotely.
