30 January 18:00 - 20:30Sentralen, Forstanderskapssalen (3rd floor)

Join us at Sentralen to hear the inside story of how scientists, designers, cognitive experts and communication specialists have co-created the key visualizations of the most important climate report of the 21st century, the IPCC special report on Global Warming of 1.5 ºC.

In December 2015, 195 countries endorsed the Paris agreement with the goal of limiting the increase in global warming to 1.5 °C. 

On this occasion the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the intergovernmental body of the United Nations dedicated to providing the world with an objective, scientific view of climate change and its political and economic impacts, was invited to provide a special report to make sure governments around the world could understand the impacts of global warming of 1.5 °C compared to 2 °C.

The IPCC special report on Global Warming of 1.5 ºC was launched in October 2018  and has been called the most important climate report of the 21st century. The summary for policy-makers, which is the essence of the report, was approved word by word in South Korea after seven days of non-stop negotiations.

The figures of the report are the result of an unprecedented collaboration between scientists, designers, cognitive experts and communication specialists.

Through talks and insightful conversations we will hear the protagonists of an extraordinary story of co-design and impact.
