Prof. Karen O’Brien will give a talk titled “Climate Change: We Matter More Than We Think” on Monday, November 22 at 19.00. O’Brien received the BBVA Foundation’s “Frontiers of Knowledge Awards” in Climate Change in 2020 for changing the paradigm of climate change action, previously confined to mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions, by folding in the concept of adaptation to unavoidable impacts.

Her current research focuses on human behavior as well as personal, cultural, and systematic transformations in the context of climate change.

The talk (in English) will be moderated by Fatma Çolakoğlu from SALT and broadcast live on the SALT Online Youtube channel.
