Exciting Lecture Series: Climate Change and Climate Crisis


Join us for an amazing lecture series exploring climate change from an interdisciplinary perspective.


Elisabeth Nemeth (Faculty of Philosophy and Education, retired), Martin Kusch (Faculty of Philosophy and Education) and Christa Schleper 

This lecture series will investigate climate change and climate crisis through the lenses of a number of disciplines: ecology, political science, ethics, climate science, geography, geology, cultural studies, oceanography, biology, economics, as well as history, philosophy and sociology of science.

All of the speakers are well-known researchers in their respective fields and beyond. Many of them participate in public debates about the probable effects of the current climate crisis and about possible remedies.

The lecture series is open to all students of the University of Vienna and to the wider public:

VO Climate Change and Climate Crisis. Interdisciplinary Perspectives (2019W)

On Oct 2 Christa Schleper and Elisabeth Nemeth held an introduction to the lecture in front of 700 students. Due to the students' immense interest in this red-hot topic the lecture had to be moved to the University of Vienna's biggest lecture hall, the Audimax.

We are looking forward to many more exciting talks and discussions!
