Climate change is the existential threat of our generation, demanding urgent and radical action. Publicly discussing what needs to be done is vital to implement lasting change. In this first Fritz Session, we therefore invite you to a talk by Prof. Johan Rockström, the new director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, discussing his agenda for managing the future of our climate.

After the talk and an audience discussion, you can join us for a reception with snacks and drinks, during which you will have the opportunity to discuss steps towards sustainable behaviour with experts from the Leuphana University Lüneburg. We are also excited to present new works by the artist Agata Engelman, grappling with the climate crisis from a different perspective.

Registrations are now closed due to limited space in the venue. Luckily, the event will be recorded! Please sign up to our (very infrequent) newsletter to be the first to know when the video is released and when the next Fritz Session is announced.

Fritz Sessions

The Fritz Sessions are a series of events at the Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society, organised by a group of PhD students. For these events, which act as institute colloquium, we invite leading experts to discuss topics that will shape the coming decades. These events are open to the public and aimed at a scientifically literate audience, but don’t require expert knowledge on their topics.
