To mark 30 years of mobilizing climate science, to celebrate the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change IPCC achievement and debate what needs to be done going forward, a series of events under the All4TheGreen umbrella and organized by Connect4Climate, the World Bank Group program for communication on climate change, will be presented in Bologna at the oldest university in Europe, on Monday, February 26th, with internationally renowned scientists, government representatives, academics and IPCC leaders all present.
Rondine’s aim is to make the medieval village where the Organizzation is located a Model City in terms of interpersonal relations, protection and respect for the environment, that witnesses how peace and environmental justice are possible. A city in which the main innovations for environmental protection, use of space by people with special-needs and energy saving can be tested, in order to form a global community that will promote the values of dialogue, social inclusion and protection of diversity.
These are the only ways to safeguard the planet and the people from natural disasters and to work for the prevention and resolution of conflicts caused by the scarcity of natural resources. It means working for peace in the world.
That is why on Monday, February 26, Rondine will attend the conference All4TheGreen, aimed to increase awareness among the public – and above all the young – on climate change and to stimulate a new generation of scientists to continue their efforts to uncover and share widely the best possible research and analysis for climate action.
The programme includes discussions on Climate Knowledge for Action, linking Climate Action to Sustainable Development and the Role of the IPCC and its Future. Renowned speakers and leaders on climate science will inspire from Europe’s oldest University town, online through the Connect4Climate community.
The main proceedings will open at 10:30 am with introductory greetings from the Rector of the University of Bologna, Francesco Ubertini, IPCC President Hoesung Lee and Minister Gian Luca Galletti.
