Summary

As part of the Climateurope2 project, the Center for the Promotion of Science (CPN) is starting a roadshow as a travelling climate action to promote climate services through art and science at five different locations in the region of Southeast Europe.

Using climate data in an effective and timely manner is key for the green recovery of our environment. Climate services allow us to use climate data for informed decision-making, to reduce certain risks, and to better adapt to climate change.

The Center for the Promotion of Science within the Climateurope2 project, funded by Horizon Europe, is working on the formation of a community of users of climate services. To present and promote climate services, the Center organizes public programs, such as the Traveling Climate Action - Roadshow, dedicated to climate research in Southeast Europe. This innovative approach should help expand the climate services community in this currently underrepresented region of Europe.

The Roadshow will take place in 10 locations in Southeast Europe, and the first five will be held in 2024, starting in June (Rijeka, Tirana, Kotor, Skopje, Sarajevo). This event includes a combination of science and art – trying to raise awareness about the role of climate services and the scientific facts accompanying climate change.

The first in a series of events will be held in cooperation with the University of Rijeka from June 19th until 21st. Within this event, citizens will have the opportunity to see the Climate Capsule, as well as the AI ​​installation M1L3NɅ, the winning proposal of the Climateeurope2 art+science open call. The climate capsule and M1L3NɅ will be exhibited on June 19th at Korzo in the city of Rijeka, from 6 pm to 10 pm, as well as on June 20th from 10 am in front of the Faculty of Physics, University of Rijeka.

In addition, an informal poetic dialogue between Ljiljana Ilić, poet, and prof. Vladimir Đurđević, a climatologist, will promote the open public call for climate action through poetry and photography.

Besides to the artistic and scientific content, the University of Rijeka, together with the Center for the Promotion of Science, organizes a panel on climate services, which brings together interested parties, representatives of the public and private sectors, as well as representatives of non-governmental organizations, civil society and scientists, who are interested in using climate information for informed decision-making. The panel will take place on June 20th, at 11 am, at the Faculty of Physics in Rijeka (Radmile Matejčić 2, room O-029). Speakers include: Prof. Dr. Vladimir Đurđević (University of Belgrade), Dr. Maja Telišman Prtenjak (PMF), Dr. Irena Ciglenečki (IRB), Dr. Ivica Vilibić (IRB), Dr. Natalija Dunić (IZOR), Dr. Diana Mance (FIZRI), Dr. Davor Mance (EFRI ), Dr. Andreina Belušić Vozila (FIZRI), Dr. Boris Mifka (FIZRI) and Dobrivoje Lale Erić (CPN), while the panel will be moderated by Dr. Marjana Brkić (CPN).

The next event is planned for Tirana from June 24th to 25th. Stay tuned for more information!
