Science for Climate

Objective

"The European Green Deal proposes the EU to be climate neutral by 2050 by promoting a series of initiatives that will protect the environment and boost the green economy, cutting pollution. This proposal uses the motto ""Science for Climate"" (SCICLI) as a point of departure to achieve two main goals: (i) raise Portuguese citizens' awareness, particularly young people, towards innovation and research being conducted in Europe to develop green technology, industry and transport and to preserve ecosystems and natural resources; and (ii) bring researchers closer to civil society, enabling meaningful opportunities for communities to express their concerns and expectations about research and, more generally, about science to face climate changes. This direct connection with people's concerns allows a simple contact among all social players, responding to Responsible, Research & Innovation (RRI) goals, and brings the public attention to the need of promoting social cohesion and inclusion while preserving cultural identity and responding to the European Green Deal. The SCICLI proposal for the European Researchers' Night (ERN) 2021 will therefore rely on the social, economic and environmental dimensions for sustainability, while promoting the relevance of science and research to contribute for climate neutrality in the future.
SCICLI will involve large segments of the scientific community in public engagement and science communication/awareness activities during the ERN and build-up activities. It will go where citizens are: this project proposes to reach four regions/cities from North to South of Portugal, involving six universities, municipalities and new research institutions from different scientific areas. It will target all age groups, with special focus on young people who are being pressured to adapt to the consequences of global changes in the next decades, and encouraging them to actively contribute with solutions by choosing scientific careers.
