Invitation to the “6th Viennese Talks on Resilience and Networks”

In the course of our research project „Roadmap to the Implementation of the Paris Agreement – RIPA“, we recently conducted a referential network analysis about climate protection measures in Austria.
The result is a map of initiatives, institutions, and measures.

Our research was guided by the “Theory of Plural Rationalities” (also known as “Cultural Theory”) and the notion of clumsy solutions, assuming that we cannot counter the current situation with a one-size-fits-all approach but rather need different approaches and perspectives.

Now, we want to present our results and deepen the insights with the question about the guiding principles of collaboration for climate mitigation and adaptation in terms of the “Theory of Plural Rationalities”.
The morning session of the day contains presentations by invited experts on the topics of climate, networks, resilience, and the “Theory of Plural Rationalities”. After a lunch break, we will continue with a round table from diverse stakeholders and that draws out the collective knowledge of all participants.

The “6th Viennese Talks on Resilience and Networks” is organized by the research team: Michael Thompson (IIASA), Brian Fath (IIASA and Towson University) and Harald Katzmair (Founder and CEO FASresearch) and hosted by the federation of Austrian Industries in Vienna.

The event takes place on Tuesday, the 17th of March 2020 from 8:30am – 4:00pm at the Federation of Austrian Industries in Vienna.

Participation is for free, but we kindly ask you to register till the 20th of January 2020 via email: andrea.werdenigg@fas.at

We are looking forward to your participation!

Ö1-Interview mit Harald Katzmair zum Thema

Durch die extremen Wetterereignisse des Jahres 2018 sowie des heurigen Winters erfahren immer mehr Menschen die Auswirkungen des Klimawandels am eigenen Leib und unterstützen die Umsetzung von Klimaschutzmaßnahmen. Gleichzeitig werden die Stimmen derjenigen lauter, die in Bezug auf den Einfluss des Menschen auf das Klima skeptisch sind und die Notwendigkeit bzw. Durchführbarkeit von Klimaschutzmaßnahmen anzweifeln. Auf regionaler Ebene gibt es zahlreiche erfolgversprechende Initiativen, aber insgesamt stockt die Umsetzung der notwendigen Maßnahmen. Zunehmende Polarisierung und Fragmentierung prägen den Klimadiskurs so wie viele anderen politischen Debatten auch.

Über die Gründe für diese Entwicklung spricht Harald Katzmair, Gründer und Leiter von FASresearch, in einem von der ORF-Wissenschaftsjournalistin Elke Ziegler gestalteten Betrag für die Ö1-Journale und für science.orf.at.

In dem Beitrag werden erste Ergebnisse der vom Klima- und Energiefonds geförderten Studie „RIPA – Roadmap to the Implementation of the Paris Agreement“ präsentiert, an der die FASresearch gemeinsam mit ihren Forschungspartnern Michael Thompson und Brian Fath vom IIASA (International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis) gerade arbeitet.
