Climate Talks

Due to the great success of the IJP-EUKI Climate Talks in 2020, we go for a new season of digital talks, building knowledge and creating awareness of the underlying causes of climate change as well as of the ecological and social impacts.

The twice monthly transnational digital discourse, funded by the European Climate Initiative EUKI, seeks to identify facts and trends, and give journalists across borders the opportunity to exchange fact-based news and tool kits, while meeting leading experts and entrepreneurs who think outside the box.

Taking into account the recent political developments, resourcing independent energy supply and searching for uncommon solutions to challenge the impacts of climate change is more important than ever.
