Highlight Lecture: How Humans are Changing Earth

Day: Thursday 25 May 2023
Time: 09:00 - 09:30
Location: Scandinavia Ballroom, Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel

Human activities have increased emissions of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. This has led to a warming trend around the globe which has led to effects such as declining Arctic sea ice, sea-level rise, shifts in animal migration patterns and more extreme events, like wildfires becoming more severe. This lecture will discuss the current understanding of human-induced global climate change over time, and how it interacts with Earth’s natural processes. It will also provide insight on mitigation efforts as communities around the world respond to the most pressing issues in climate change.
