Cli­mate sci­ent­ist and pro­fess­or at the Pots­dam In­sti­tu­te for Cli­mate Im­pact Re­search

"Cli­mate Crisis: What we know and what we can do about it"

The talk will dis­cuss the latest data and find­ings from cli­mate sci­en­ce. What im­pacts does glob­al warm­ing already have? Can we still reach the goals of the Par­is Agree­ment, and what is our re­main­ing car­bon budget?

Wolfgang Feist

Founder of the Pass­ive House In­sti­tu­te

"Pass­ive House - More than a con­tri­bu­tion to cli­mate pro­tec­tion"

The pass­ive house concept was de­ve­loped to re­duce en­ergy re­quire­ments to a sus­tain­able level. This makes a sus­tain­able en­ergy sup­ply from re­new­able en­ergy pos­sible. Fur­ther as­pects are de­cis­ive for the con­struc­tion and ren­ov­a­tion of build­ings; res­ults are dis­cussed here.
