KI employees and students participated in global climate manifestation
On 25 March, Fridays for Future organised climate demonstrations around the world, to raise awareness of the climate crisis among the public and policy makers. Together with the Researchers' Desk, KI employees, PhD students and students showed their support for the climate.
In Stockholm, hundreds of people participated, and from KI members of the Climate Network participated together with Vice-President Anders Gustafsson and Professor Mats J Olsson, Head of Department of Clinical Neuroscience. By joining the demonstration, KI employees expressed their support for Greta Thunberg and the climate movement's fight to reach the Paris Agreement's goals.
According to the WHO, there is a very strong case for curbing climate change from a health perspective: the climate crisis poses an extreme threat to human health.Taking part in the climate change demonstration is a way of standing up for the health and well-being of future generations.
