TdLab Geography contributed to Heidelberg Physics Graduate Days

The “TdLab Geography” (Dr. Nicole Aeschbach) developed a “Decarbonization Lab” as part of the course “Climate Science and its Implications” taught by Prof. Dr. Werner Aeschbach at the Heidelberg Physics Graduate Days at Heidelberg University. About 50 doctoral students of the Heidelberg Graduate School of Fundamental Physics (HGSFP) worked on creative and effective measures as contributions to reach the climate targets set in Paris 2015. During the graduate course, the participants had previously gathered profound knowledge about the climate system, anthropogenic climate change and climate policy. On this basis, they joined interactive group work and presented their results during a plenary session on 12 April 2019. The impressive outcome includes measures for energy production, energy storage, mobility, nutrition and housing as well as carbon dioxide removal (CCS).

The recently launched “TdLab Geography” aims at the development of innovative methods at the science-society interface. These approaches are implemented into research, teaching and communication mainly in the context of climate change, sustainability and digital geography.
