Climate Change and Science Fiction – a Possible Vision of the Future, or Already Reality?

Worldwide climate change and its regional impacts represent one of the greatest challenges for the global community. Yet, in many cases, we have only just begun to find societal answers to the effects of climate change. The active participation of all social actors is vital to achieving the necessary transformation processes – and the medium of film can play an important part! The core of this event is a panel discussion with members from the scientific community and the film industry, who will tackle the following topics: Are scenarios that depict the effects of global climate change unsuitable for cinema in the early 21st century? Do filmmakers lack the courage and/or imagination to create utopian stories that address the need to change the way we live? Panel and audience will face these questions from different perspectives but optimistic viewpoints.
The talk will be held in English. In Cooperation with the Helmholtz Climate Initiative Regional Climate Change (REKLIM) at the Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research and the DEKRA University of Applied Sciences, Berlin. Admission is free.
