Visualizing Climate Science

A participatory approach is the foundation for building solutions that empower citizens, policymakers, experts, and non-experts to make informed decisions. Co-designing data visualizations that reflect the findings made with climate science is key to reach the right audiences and foster change. Data visualization explained by Angela Morelli, the information designer that contributed to the most recent Summaries for Policymakers published by the IPCC.

Bringing the Future into the Present

Scenarios are the language through which climate models tell how the future might unfold. How can we give life to these futures through mathematics and ingenuity? Massimo Tavoni, lead author of the IPCC and director of the RFF-CMCC European Institute on Economics and the Environment, discusses how science designs scenarios, and how they help communicate the climate challenge and guide decisions.

Giorgio Parisi: Ordering Chaos

Is there an order to chaos? Professor Giorgio Parisi walks us through the amazing patterns and rules that govern apparently random phenomena in his Nobel lecture on the theory of complex systems and their implications for our understanding of the world that surrounds us.

Klaus Hasselmann: The Link Between Weather and Climate

Understanding the link between weather patterns and climate change is a key part of breaking down how humans influence the environment. This year’s Nobel Prize in Physics Professor Klaus Hasselmann gives his Nobel lecture on how both weather and climate are interconnected, even though weather is inherently unpredictable. Watch the full lecture.

The Beauty of the Ocean, at EXPO Dubai 2020

All maritime dimensions from a single scientific perspective, from the global ocean to the coastal area of Dubai. Ocean information and forecasts at the service of human societies, ecosystems, and sustainable development at the Italy Pavilion at EXPO 2020 Dubai, with the CMCC frontier research.

To What Extent do We Value the Future?

Over the last few decades, through rigorous investigation and research, the scientific community has reached a consensus around the reality of climate change. As this process continues, there is also a need to focus on finding solutions to the unfolding crisis and communicating scientific knowledge through effective storytelling.

The Era of Climate Opportunity

How important is listening to science when facing climate risks: renewable energy, advances in technology, an active financial sector and carbon pricing. It is “A perfect storm of climate opportunity”.

Ocean. Stories of Humans and Climate Change

The ocean tells stories of climate change. Journalism brings them to the world. A dialogue on how climate change and pollution are affecting the ocean and people’s lives, and how stories grounded in scientific evidence can be made accessible to the public at large through journalism and writing.
