We see undeniable climate-related events every day on the news, in our neighbourhoods, and there is evidence that climate change is here, and now. We know that droughts or floods are intensifying, oceans are warming and acidifying; we are seeing more and more extreme weather events, increased temperatures, and the West Antarctic and Greenland ice-sheets melting. There is now little doubt that climate change, global warming is anthropogenic, caused by the mankind.
So the students in our environmental activities decided to talk about the problems and the possible solutions that have already grown beyond choices that individuals can make. The organizers of World Tomorrow invited students, teachers and visitors from Laski to an event to learn about the greenhouse effect, global warming and the social and economic consequences of anthropogenic climate change from teachers Alistair Robertson, István Poór and student Antonia Reininger. The event was held in the Høegh Centre and was hosted by the environmental EACs: Ozonizers, LEAF and Green Thumbs. Everyone agreed that the discussion shouldn’t stop, but continue next term.
Thank you to all who took part.
