Can climate communication overcome the bad news problem?

Climate change is real and is widely perceived as the most serious threat to the world’s future. Climate change needs to be reported, made visible and discussed to drive and inspire us to taking action.

Vattenfall is bringing together media, scientists, NGOs, and representatives from politics and business to share and discuss their insights into these issues. Join Vattenfall for a special interactive hybrid event that will be broadcast from Brussels’ historical Bibliothèque Solvay on Tuesday 24 September 2024.
