Everyone is talking about man-made climate change. But although it is now widely recognised, its consequences are extremely unevenly distributed. These climate_in_justices are likely to increase in the future.

On the occasion of the Long Night of the Sciences, scientists from various disciplines and institutions will talk about their research on the consequences of man-made climate change at the Humboldt Lab. In three lectures and a panel discussion, agricultural ecologists, architects, geologists and political scientists, among others, will ask the question: What can we do to counter climate change – and how can we distribute its effects more fairly?

Access to the events is open to all Long Night of the Sciences ticket holders – available from the beginning of May here: Long Night of the Sciences.



Climate_in_justices #1

Dis_abled Nature. Damaged Landscapes and Sensory Diversity in Anthropocene Environments

Talk by Siegfried Saerberg and Robert Stock

Nature and disability are closely linked. The terms reflect the damage, but also the diversity of our world. The crisis of nature cultures – their dis_ability – is the consequence of globalised economies and climate injustices. Attempts at healing and restoration are linked to them, as are protests and artistic interventions aimed at other futures. But how sustainable are approaches to the climate crisis that rely on a visual anthropocentrism and the idea of nature domination? Doesn’t smelling, touching and hearing have to be brought to the fore in order to make room for a diverse perceptual knowledge that is close to living beings?


Climate_in_justices #2

Agritecture. Of mushrooms, dinos and motorways

Talk by Marcel Robischon, Susanne Junker, Dirk Hermann, Celina Schlichting and Tino Brüllke

Can the dark spaces under the A103 motorway be transformed into a mushroom farm? Will an urban forest – comparable to New York’s High Line – run through Berlin’s urban landscape? In the interdisciplinary research, teaching and learning project “Agritecture”, agriculture meets architecture. Here, scientists are rethinking urban spaces together. In the middle of Berlin, they simulate the interactions between plants, animals and architecture. In the lecture, the researchers will present their projects – and show new design options for urban development.

Climate_in_justices #3

The story of the disappearing water towers

Talk by Tobias Sauter

Mountains are “water towers of the world”. Almost a third of the world’s population depends on their water resources. Glacial ice and snow regulate the seasonal fluctuations of mountain rivers and ensure a balanced water supply for downstream areas. Shrinking and disappearing glaciers threaten the availability of water as well as biodiversity and mountain ecosystems – important resources of people living in and around mountains. The lecture explores the development of high mountain glaciers and the causes and consequences of their threat from climate change.

Climate_in_justices #4

With democracy against climate_in_justice.
Migrant organising and administration in dialogue

Panel discussion with Manuela Bojadžijev, Nils Warner (BMZ) and activists of the Stop Deportation Camp at BER

Unevenly distributed climate change impacts are closely linked to flight and migration: Visa applicants from countries particularly affected by climate change are rejected more often than average. Administrative procedures open up the possibility of appeal; migrant resistance takes the issue to the streets. On a panel, representatives from science, administration and migrant organisations will seek dialogue and explore the scope and limits of a migration policy that takes the challenges of climate change seriously.
