“The End of Comfort? Facing climate change and energy security” Symposium with Jakub Wiech and Malte Renz

Monday 13 June 2022, 20:00

The last few years, and especially the last few months, have unequivocally demonstrated the impermanence of life. The 2020s began with an unexpected worldwide event that radically overturned the previous status quo. Plagues, weather, and war have turned our world on its head, increasing the number of storms and rapidly driving up energy prices over the last months and years. It makes us at SIB ponder: will we ever go back? 

We have gathered two lecturers today who will speak on the matters of climate resilience and energy security: Malte Renz, a researcher in JIN Climate and Sustainability Groningen, will discuss climate resilience and how we might prepare our infrastructure for the coming storm, and Jakub Wiech, an analyst and journalist, will discuss energy security.
