    Dear all - Please find an interesting invitation by The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) below!

    WMO is launching a new series of public science lectures, which will invite world-leading experts in the fields of weather, climate, water, the environment, and related areas to engage with the WMO community, WMO Members, partner organizations and the interested public.


    The inaugural lecture will be co-hosted with the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) and will take place at WMO Secretariat, in Geneva, on 8 May 2019 at 16h00. The event will begin with a welcome by WMO Secretary-General, Petteri Taalas, WMO Chief Scientist Pavel Kabat (convener of the new series) and Chairperson of the WCRP Joint Scientific Committee, Detlef Stammer. This will be followed by an address by H.E. Ambassador Luis Alfonso de Alba, the UN Secretary-General's Special Envoy for the 2019 Climate Summit. Professor Thomas Stocker, Professor of Climate and Environmental Physics at the University of Bern and former Co-chair of Working Group I of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), will then present a lecture entitled: "The Climate of Tomorrow: Building the Knowledge for Earth Stewardship." The event will conclude with a high-level panel discussion, interactions with audience,  and reception, the latter made possible due to the kind support of the Federal Office of Meteorology and Climatology, MeteoSwiss.

     

    The lecture will be webcast at the following link (available on 8 May 2019, 16h00): https://c.connectedviews.com/01/WMOPublic.
