This presentation is a part of Klimatstudenterna-KTH project focusing on creating awareness and collaborations in the sub-domain of sustainable travels within the university level. It encapsulates the intent behind taking this initiative of aligning policies and decisions with the KTH Climate Framework which is further in line with the Paris Agreement. The presentation is complemented by providing real life examples of students opting for sustainable modes of transport within Europe and followed by an open discussion where attendees can ask questions to the concerned members regarding these initiatives.
“The Climate Collage is a serious game about climate change, based on collective intelligence and creativity. Whether you’re completely new to the topic or quite savvy, you can play the Climate Collage. In 3 hours’ time, you will retrace the IPCC’s reasoning and you may even have fun doing it! You’ll also have the opportunity to discuss the consequences, challenges and changes that you see are coming or should be coming.”
How to particpate: 8 different sessions will be held during the day
