The Heidelberg Center for the Environment (HCE) combines a wide range of environmental perspectives including natural sciences, social sciences and cultural studies. It focuses on humans’ physical and socio-cultural environments as well as the specific dynamics of these environments, and also on how these dynamics interact with each other. In recent history, the intensity of this interaction has strongly increased in many areas, which challenges us to take a comprehensive approach in examining and integrating various academic perspectives into our research.
Panel dicussion: Climate Engineering
On May 14th four leading experts discussed the current state of knowledge and the perspectives of Climate Engineering with the audience of the Heidelberger Brücke colloquium.:
- Prof. Dr. Ulrike Lohmann, ETH Zürich, Institute for Atmospheric and Climate Science
- Prof. Dr. Gregor Betz, KIT, Institute for Philosophy
- Prof. Dr. Andreas Oschlies, GEOMAR Helmholtz-Centre for Ocean Research Kiel
- Prof. Timo Goeschl, PhD, Heidelberg University, Alfred-Weber-Institute for Environmental Economics
The debate brought up interesting and controversial aspects. The discussion was moderated by Miranda Böttcher from the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies e.V. (IASS).
