Panel discussion: Let´s talk about the ocean and climate change


What can be done? How can we drive actions towards a sustainable future? Panel discussion in Act! Sustainable - the sustainable week for students and staff at the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology.

The ocean is our planet´s largest carbon sink and plays a key role in regulating the climate. So does the cryosphere - the frozen water of the Earth. However, increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide is acidifying our ocean and the polar landscape has been quickly changing during the last decades. Why is the ocean-atmosphere interaction in the Southern Ocean relevant to glaciers in the Arctic and seafood in the west coast of Sweden? In this multidisciplinary panel discussion where physical oceanography and marine ecology meet photography and international law, listen to what can be done to drive actions and changes towards a sustainable future.
