Bergen, Norway

29 May 2024, 17:30 – 19:30 CEST

Join Impetus4Change and the Bjerknes Climate Prediction Unit for an engaging side-event dedicated to fostering dialogue and knowledge exchange among scientists, users, and providers of climate information. Hosted on Wednesday, May 29, 2024, from 17:30 to 19:30 CEST, the event will take place in the “Galleriet” room at Kulturhuset, Vaskerelven 8, 5014 Bergen.

This informal gathering will feature thematic discussions set up at different round tables, where participants will engage in small group conversations for a designated period, typically 15 minutes. Throughout the evening, attendees will have the opportunity to rotate to new tables, facilitating diverse interactions and insights.

The primary objective of the evening is to facilitate maximum exchange and mutual learning, allowing all participants to share their experiences and perspectives on climate change within their professional spheres.

Some suggested discussion topics include:

  • Addressing the gap between climate information production and its use.
  • Integrating climate and non-climate data and knowledge systems.
  • Harnessing climate information across different forecast horizons.
  • Exploring synergies between the private, public, and higher education & research sectors.
  • Enhancing resilience to extreme events in the Northern Hemisphere, such as flood and glacier-melt risk.
  • Climate action toolkit for world heritage sites.
  • Climate adaptation strategies specific to Bergen.

A final program detailing the confirmed topics and table hosts will be shared with registered participants and posted on this page after May 20, 2024.
