Live Broadcast Event

In this brand-new series, organized by the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS), we invite you to soak up cutting-edge insights by researchers and critical thinkers and ask them your burning questions.  

In the first episode, we will have all eyes on the topic of Climate and the Environment.  

More on the programme

In the run-up to World Environment Day, this episode will be centered around one key research area: climate and the environment

  • What are the key eye-openers we all need to walk away with?
  • What are possible alternatives that we are not talking about enough? 
  • And how should we interpret these in the face of major geopolitical shifts in the world?  

The conversation will be research at its finest: critical, based on real-world insights, and bringing together a kaleidoscope of perspectives. Climate veteran or newbie, this topic is relevant for us all and you are welcome to join!
