International IDEA's post

🌍 Next Tuesday the 23rd of April marks the first in the #StockholmSeries of Public Events on Climate Change and Democracy 🌍
👉 There are still a few seats left - register today to ensure your participation!
In this lecture, we will hear from Jennie King, Director of Climate Policy & Research, Institute of Strategic Dialogue, London, who will speak about "Overheated: The Fight for Information Integrity, Climate Action, and Democracy":
Democracy demands a public mandate, translating our common will into policies that can benefit the whole. This is especially true for the climate crisis, as we face a ‘brief and rapidly closing window’ (IPCC) to act for a liveable future. Despite the urgency and gravity of this moment, public discourse on the issue is increasingly fragmented, partisan, and unmoored from science. Climate action has become a lightning rod for conspiracism and mistrust of institutions and is being weaponised to deepen social divisions. How did we get here? Who stands to benefit? And, above all, how can we chart a pathway forward?
The lecture will be followed by a conversation with Dr. Victor Galaz, Associate Professor, Stockholm Resilience Centre & Dr. Kevin Casas-Zamora, Secretary-General, International IDEA, questions/comments from the audience, and a reception.
Please note that this is an in-person event - if you can't be there on Tuesday, stay tuned as we will share a video recording afterward!
