Parallel to the COP27 live studio event (Multihallen), KTH has organised open activities with researchers and students and student organisations in the restaurant section during lunches and the evening. More information about these events below.
These events will be held in the old restaurant venue at Vallahallavägen 79.
CLIMATE FRESK WORKSHOP 17.00-20.00 (English)
The Climate Fresk workshop is a fun and collaborative way to learn the science behind the IPCC reports.
It is simple: Participants gather around a table in teams of 4 to 7. They work collaboratively, using the Climate Fresk cards, to learn about the cause and effect relationship between different components of climate change. A trained facilitator, part of the KTH association Student for Sustainability, guides the entire process and provides additional insight.
Everyone can participate ! Beginners will learn the basics of climate science and more experienced participants will build on and structure their existing knowledge. The duration of a workshop is 3 hours.
The role of youth in pushing implementation of science-based climate solutions, 12.00-13.00 (english)
Klimatstudenterna welcome you to a round table discussion stimulated by video extracts from conversations recorded for Stockholm+50 by the Klimatstudenterna's Third Task project.
A brief introduction and screening will be followed by 15-20 minute of group discussions. The discussion will be summed up by the moderators/participants from each group, and then placed in context of COP27.
Do you know the local tool library or bike rental service in your area? Have you visited a co-working space or community garden recently? Or do you want to find more places like this? Come to the Mapjam!
As part of COP 27 the Students for Sustainability (SforS) group is hosting a crowd-sourcing event. Our goal will be to find places that are about sharing a space or goods, like libraries, repair cafés, bike rentals, etc. We want to find as many places as possible that focus on access over ownership.
It's important to gather as many people as possible. So even if you don't know what exactly you could contribute right now, don't worry.
All our findings will later be added into an open source map called
where everyone can see them.
Our Mapjam will roughly last until 20:00 o'clock. We will of course have some food. Wraps (vegan) to first 20 participants

Welcome to listen to Christina Carlmark holding a Climate Reality presentation, explaining what the climate crisis is and what we need to do about it.
Christina is a Climate Reality Leader and has been trained by former Vice President Al Gore in 2015 and 2018. Today, she is the volunteer co-ordinator for trained Climate Reality Leaders in the Nordic countries. She also works at We Don’t Have Time.
The Climate Reality Project
was founded by Al Gore, with the purpose to train people around the world so that they can find local solutions to the climate crisis. To date, +50.000 people have been trained.
From COP27, there is a session with ClimateReality Project Africa on November 15, 19:00-20:00 CET.
Changing the game of consumption 12.00-13.00 (English)
During COP27 Mistra Sustainable Consumption invites you to test run a game based on their research on measures for enabling sustainable consumption.
Free lunch wraps to the first 20 participants
Join us in testing an interactive board game to change consumption. Consumption is currently far from sustainable because the goods we consume cause extensive negative consequences for both people and the environment. Within the Mistra Sustainable Consumption research program, researchers have identified a number of ways in which living and consuming, in the areas of food, vacation and home furnishing, could help achieve more sustainable consumption.
The game is based on the report 62 enablers for Sustainable consumption that focus on private consumption but also to public consumption, school meals and on enabling sustainable and reduced consumption in general.
The collection of examples are not to be seen as recommendations, but can be used as inspiration for politicians at both national and local level, for decision-makers at companies and in authorities, and for organizations in civil society.
