Climate Climb Event 2019

Cope with large scale climate impact on an individual level
We share insights seen from space, 8000 meter mountains and with ears on the ground

The event shares facts about climate science and learnings but also the awe of the planet seen from space by NASA and the European Space Agency, from 8000 meter mountains by Carina and with the ear on the ground by Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project and the Stockholm Resilience Centre. ”If I as a climber can take small steps to reach the summit over 8000 meter, you can take steps too. Be the change you want to see in the world.”

The event is organised by Carina Ahlqvist, Climate Advocate and high altitude climber.
