Closing Conference - Project Multiple Crises

12 avril | 10h00

Umwelt, Klima, Energie: Gesellschaften und ihre ökologischen Herausforderungen

After three years of research, we are very much looking forward to presenting the results of our research project to you. The final conference of the research project “Multiple Crises. Covid-19 and the Entanglements of Public Health, Security and Ecology in Europe”, which is based at the Centre Marc Bloch (CMB) and funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), will bring together researchers from different academic traditions in an interdisciplinary and interactive working environment. The aim is to discuss the challenges that societies, decision-makers and experts are facing in the context of multiple crises characterized by climate change, public health issues and a growing number of global conflicts. One focus of this conference will be to reflect on the roles and formats in which the social sciences can contribute to addressing these issues. We look forward to welcoming around 50 invited guests from various fields of expertise. The conference aims to explore new research questions for a future multiple crises scholarship.
