The aim of the first event in the Climate Change Series was for participants to understand that climate change does not exist in isolation and to start perceiving it in terms of its relation and connection to other important issues such as conflict, gender, science, forestry and agriculture, adaptive behaviour and energy.
Participants were organized in 6 rotating groups led by experts in the respective fields and were given an opportunity to discuss and better understand how to bridge concepts and adequately address the intersectionality of climate change.
