The 15th International Swiss Climate Summer School is focusing on the
theme “Climate Risks – Coping with Uncertainty”. This theme has been
chosen due to its paramount importance in terms of both scientific
challenges and pressing societal concerns. Always with a focus on
uncertainty, the specific topics include:
– What is ‘dangerous climate change’?
– Emergent climate risks and vulnerability
– From global climate change to regional impacts
– Economics of climate change and adaptation, geo-⁠⁠engineering
– Ethical aspects, policy choices and policy making

The Summer School invites young researchers from all fields of climate
research. The courses cover a broad spectrum of climate and climate
impact research issues and foster cross-⁠⁠disciplinary links. Each topic
includes keynote plenary lectures and workshops with in-⁠depth discussion
in smaller groups. All Summer School participants are expected to
present a poster of their research and there will be ample opportunity
for discussion.
