International Conference on Climate Justice on June 28 and 29

Posted on 21 June 2023 by BaerbelW

On June 28 & 29, 2023 the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence for Climate Justice will host its fifth International Conference on Climate Justice. This year's conference topic is Beyond the emergency and features speakers from around the globe who all have been invited to give short presentations related to mutual and transformative practices for change.

One of the keynotes on Wednesday is of particular interest from our perspective: Skeptical Science: Giving facts a fighting chance against (climate) misinformation. It will be presented by Bärbel Winkler and includes an overview about our website's history, our rebuttal database, our projects and our myth pre- and debunking resources. We will share the presentation after the conference.
