The topic of discussion:

 

The time has come when we can and must no longer regard climate change as a problem concerning future generations. Answering what each of us individually might do to stop climate change, Naomi Klein simply said: nothing. That is why one of the key questions is the following: what kind of systemic changes are necessary for humanity to meet its greatest challenge, the preservation of living conditions and survival on planet Earth, not only its own, but that of other living species as well? From that perspective, Elizabeth Kolbert’s calculation that by the end of the 21st century over 20% of all living species will have disappeared from the face of the Earth, in what she calls the “Sixth Extinction”, seems alarming indeed. Does this mean that we need a total paradigm shift, removing man from the centre of the world, and replacing him with Donna Haraway’s “symbiotic model”? Also, is it possible at all to speak and think about climate change outside of the context of global capitalism, the “Capitalocene” era and the need to “decolonise” our concept of nature as well, whereby “natural resources” are there only to serve human needs? Today, more than ever before, one cannot discuss nature in isolation from culture, society, politics, or any other area. If we seek to understand interactions between ecosystems, the mechanosphere, and referential social universes, we ought to learn to think “transversally”. In a transversal approach, where sustainability will play a key role – as well as in the broader sense of understanding ecological landscapes – the social and the political will operate as an ecosystem wherein everything is interconnected.

Therefore, this panel discussion will address numerous questions about tackling the problem of climate change from the positions of experts coming from various fields. The idea is to use this transdisciplinary approach to open new vistas and survey all the ramifications of climate change that we can already feel across the planet. Also, it is likewise important to re-examine the efficacy of global as well as national protocols and strategies for preventing climate change from making a further impact on biodiversity, increased frequency of natural disasters, environmental migration, economic crises, etc.
