Event Details

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:

  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?

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.
