Climate Change through the Lens of an Inter- and Transdisciplinary Project: Climate Walk
Climate Change Communication & Socio-Ecological Transformation (“We Conn_Act”)
The purpose of this lecture series is twofold. First, the aim of the series is to show the diversity of perspectives on Climate Change and how in particular Climate Change research can be opened up to the general public and thus can contribute to a transdisciplinary research agenda. Second, the lecture series will account for the usefulness and conceptual foundations of an interdisciplinary participatory approach to studying climate change at the example of the “Climate Walk” project.
Andreas Scherlofsky (University of Vienna)
Gabriel Baunach (Climaware)
Daniela Becker (Journalist),
Ulrich Brand (University of Vienna),
Manuel Grebenjak (Stay Grounded)
Camila Moreno (HU Berlin)
For accomplishing these two goals, representatives from civil society are brought together with academic experts from different disciplines.
Both groups speak of current trends within Climate Change research and Climate activism and refer to the Climate Walk’s project design as one possible reference frame for future climate change research.
