Title: Climate change: how can we motivate transformation?
Speaker: Prof. Roberto Buizza, Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna (Pisa, Italy)

Climate change is here and we have to deal with it. Observations give us evidence of what is happening, and science helps us understand how we got here. Technology is available to address the problem, and the investments needed to transform human activities are manageable. Yet, why have we not taken impactful actions? Why do governments keep talking about future goals, while they fail to put in place policies that can trigger immediate and effective actions? In this talk, I will discuss these aspects and how we can motivate a radical transformation.
