Ideas worth spreading are the basic idea of TED Talks. TEDx is an extension of the concept, with local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience for slightly smaller groups. TEDxKTH is currently organized by the KTH Library.
TEDxKTH Salon: Why aren't politicians listening to scientists?
Why was the climate issue not debated during the Swedish election campaign? Why don't politicians in Sweden and globally listen to research related to the climate crisis? Do we have to wait for politicians to act or can the climate crisis be tackled in other ways?
According to the UN's global goal number 13, we must take immediate measures to combat climate change. A number of researchers connected to KTH were invited to this TEDx.
Time: Wednesday 25 January 2023, at 15:00–16:30.
Participants: Jonna Bornemark, Olga Kordas, Elina Eriksson, Jonas Anund Vogel. Moderator Karin Larsdotter.
