To end the lecture series “Bald schon fünf nach Zwölf” and the project “Bremen erneuerbar”, Professor Hans Joachim Schellnhuber will be welcomed as a guest on Monday, May 10, 2021. The renowned climate expert is a founder of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) and former scientific advisor for persons such as Angela Merkel and EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.

After a presentation on the current state of research, the effects of the climate crisis for the economy, and parallels between the climate crisis and corona, Schellnhuber will debate with Bremen politicians. The scientist will talk to the Senator for the Environment Meike Schäfer (Green Party “Grüne”), as well as the climate-political spokespersons from the State Parliamentary Fractions – Carsten Sieling (Social Democratic Party “SPD”), Martin Michalik (Christian Democratic Union “CDU”), Nelson Janßen (The Left “Die Linke”), and Magnus Buhlert (Free Democratic Party “FDP”) – about the necessities and possibilities for local climate protection.
