German Evangelical Church Assembly: Panel series and exhibition on Climate Change Impacts

Religion and climate change are having touch points - this has already been proven by the Pope's environment encyclical "Laudato Si", that has been presented to the world public by PIK-director John Schellnhuber in 2015. Now, also the Protestant Community provides a platform for the topic: "The reformatory advent 500 years ago was an outbreak from old habits. Reformation is change. How do we set forth today, bold, creative and powerful, to face challenges as the climate crisis, economic crisis, financial crisis, peace crisis?", asks the German Evangelical Church Assembly on the occasion of the 500th jubilee of the Reformation. The panel series "Impacts of Climate Change" is dedicated to the encounter with the climate crisis. PIK's chief economist Ottmar Edenhofer, as well as Hermann Lotze-Campen, research domain co-chair at PIK, along with PIK-scientists Elmar Kriegler and Carl-Friedrich Schleussner will act on the stage. Additionally, the exhibition "Educational Climate Journey" is co-designed by PIK.
