Abstract Submission and Registration: 15 July 2022.
The 5th edition of the Polish Scientific Networks conference entitled Climate Change: Science & Society (September 28-30, 2022 in Wroclaw, Poland) is devoted to the causes and impacts of climatic changes. It will bring together leading Polish climate change researchers and experts from around the world to better understand climate impacts on world environments and societies – and how to respond to them.
Climatic changes are one of the biggest challenges we face today and play a major role in the functioning of the modern world. Changes in the climate system have already had observable effects on the worlds’ environment. Glaciers have retreated, sea-ice is disappearing earlier, plant and animal ranges have shifted, and trees are flowering sooner. Warmer oceans are becoming more acidic, affecting marine life. Rising sea levels due to thermal expansion and melting land ice sheets and glaciers put coastal areas at greater risk of erosion and storm surges. Intense heatwaves are observed all around the globe. Things that we depend upon and value – water, energy, transportation, wildlife, agriculture, ecosystems – are experiencing the effects of a changing climate. The changing environment is expected to cause more heat stress, an increase in waterborne diseases, poor air quality, and diseases transmitted by insects and rodents. Extreme weather events can compound many of these health threats and facilitate the spread of pandemics. Climate change also affects our art and culture, modifies our lifestyles and political agendas.
The conference will:
- Highlight the latest information on climate change is transforming worlds landscapes, environments and societies, what is at risk and how to respond;
- Identify key knowledge gaps;
- Promote collaborations between national and international teams and
- Stimulate the next generation of science and actions.
