The Klimagune Conferences initiative involves a series of lectures through which the aim is to incorporate multidisciplinary insights and viewpoints into the debate on Climate Change, thereby helping to create a society that is more and better informed regarding the collective venture of social and economic development from a sustainable perspective.
The purpose of these lectures is to help create a Basque society that is better informed and more aware of Climate Change through the contributions made from complementary standpoints by leading experts who pursue their work in this field.
The first edition of Klimagune Conferences was held this past 3 March within the setting of a conference hosted by the Bilbao Chamber of Commerce and involved two leading experts whose work addresses Climate Change from different perspectives. The speakers were Cristina García Orcoyen, director of the Entorno Foundation, and María Josep Picó, a journalist specialising in Climate Change. The sessions were chaired by Nieves Terán, the regional deputy minister for the environment in the Basque Government.
