REKLIM-Conference Receives Innovative Attention Through Journalism Students


From October 6th to 9th 2014 the REKLIM Research-Network of the Helmholtz-Association hosted an international scientific conference in Berlin: „Our Climate – Our Future, Regional Perspectives on a Global Challenge“. Our Working Group regularily contributes to REKLIM and we were represented in the Session 6: “Extreme meteorological events and their impacts in a changing climate” with no less than three contributions evolving around the topic of hail.

As part of this event students studying Journalism at the DEKRA Hochschule Berlin conducted an innovative media-project. Interviews, reports and photo streams will be presented by the soon-to-be journalists on a conference blog in order to provide the public with information about the results of climate research so far. Within this project five interesting short documentations emerged that highlight different aspects of climate change
