Unfolding Tomorrow — The fight for a cooler planet
The global temperature is now 1.2 degrees above the pre-industrial baseline, and we’re woefully off track to stay at 1.5 degrees as called for in the Paris agreement. The climate crisis continues, and we need drastic actions towards carbon neutrality — and we need them soon. How did we let this happen? What have we already done, and what can Finland, companies and you do to fight for a cooler planet?
At Aalto University, we believe in solving problems related to sustainability through entrepreneurship, in facing problems rather than pretending they don’t exist, and in educating ourselves rather than using the lack of knowledge as an excuse. And we believe in you.
Unfolding Tomorrow is an event series that brings the brightest minds in business, academia and government together to talk about what we can do today to make tomorrow better. The event topics come from the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and their targets and indicators.
This Unfolding Tomorrow event is about SDG 13: Climate Action — Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.
We’re joined by representatives from academia, the startup world, and politics for brief introductory talks followed by a panel discussion. You’ll hear about climate change from different perspectives, learn of the actions we’ve taken thus far, and the actions we still need to take in order to keep the planet habitable.
