WCRP webinar: “Sources of climate information: The role of our values and context”

The Argentinean Hub of My Climate Risk (WCRP) invites you to the following webinar and kindly asks you to circulate this information within your networks:

Fuentes de información climática. ¿cómo influyen nuestros valores y contexto?

Sources of climate information: The role of our values and context

23 August 2023, 14:00-15:30 UTC

This webinar will address the sources of information and lines of evidence used for the construction of climate knowledge. Is the physical science of climate an “objective” science or is it influenced by the

context and values ​​of the researcher? Also, are the sources of information that we choose important for the societal relevance of climate knowledge?

The webinar is the third in a series on “Actionable Climate Knowledge,” organized by the Argentinean Hub of the WCRP My Climate Risk Lighthouse Activity. The webinar will have simultaneous interpretation in Spanish/English. 

More information:


The recordings of the first two webinars from the series are now available:

Both webinars can be viewed in Spanish or English.

Kind regards

Extended deadline: Abstract submission for the CCMI workshop in Toulouse

Thank you to everyone who has submitted abstracts for the CCMI workshop. We are beginning work to organize the program based on the contributions we have, but given that it is summer time for many of you and there have been a few recent enquiries about submitting abstracts, we have left the abstract submission system open for a few more days. The system is now due to stop accepting new submissions at the end of the day August 4th. So if you have been thinking about submitting an abstract, there is still time!

  As a reminder, the workshop website is at

Upcoming webinar: How do we address climate risk? Challenges from an interdisciplinary dialogue

The Argentinean Hub of My Climate Risk (WCRP) invites you to attend the webinar:

How do we address climate risk? Challenges from an interdisciplinary dialogue

June 27th 11:00-12:30 Arg | 14:00-15:30 UTC

This webinar is the first one in a series entitled “Actionable Climate Knowledge.” We will address one of the main challenges in producing actionable climate knowledge: how to construct knowledge that is relevant for integration in decisions about risk management in the context of climate change. Three research experiences from different disciplinary perspectives illustrate successful cases in Argentina.

Upcoming SRI 2023 session: Enhancing Capacity for Climate Risk Assessment and Catalyzing Partnerships to Inform Decisions in Latin America and the Caribbean

The WCRP community is warmly invited to the Latin America and the Caribbean LACI SRI 2023 sessionEnhancing Capacity for Climate Risk Assessment and Catalyzing Partnerships to Inform Decisions in Latin America and the Caribbean

The session will be hybrid and the WCRP community have been provided with a complimentary Zoom link. The session objectives are to introduce the LACI pilot activities, which focus on catalyzing partnerships across the Americas and advancing regional capacity in climate risk assessment to help inform decision-making on climate impacts. 

The session will be held on Monday 26 June, 2:30-6:00 pm (ET) / 8:30-11:30 pm (CEST). Here is the registration form. 

Tomorrow: next event of the Tipping Points Discussion Series

We invite you to join us for our upcoming discussion on Tipping Points in Education and Digitalisation, taking place on 25 May 2023, 15:30 – 17:00 CEST

This webinar is part of the Tipping Points Discussion Series organized by AIMES, the Earth Commission, the WCRP Safe Landing Climates Lighthouse Activity, and partners. The series aims to advance knowledge of tipping elements, irreversibility, and abrupt changes in the Earth system – both in natural and social systems. Our two speakers are: 

  • Raya Muttarak (University of Bologna) – Exploring the role of education as a potential accelerator of sustainable society
  • Ridhi Kashyap (University of Oxford) – Digital technologies as accelerators of information diffusion

The discussion will be moderated by Anne Goujon (IIASA)

All information and the link to register are available on the FutureEarth website.

CACTI workshop: Abstract submission open

The goal of the workshop is to review the progress since the last TriMIP workshop (TriMIP-3) that brought together the active and collaborative communities of AerChemMIP, RAMIP, RFMIP, and PDRMIP. This workshop will focus on advances in our understanding since AR6, identifying gaps and informing future research directions based on the community “Composition Air quality Climate inTeractions Initiative (CACTI): Emissions to Response”.
The hybrid workshop will be held in-person at GEOMAR in Kiel from Tuesday 13 June to Thursday 15 June 2023, with an option to join online. The workshop will consist of a mix of presentations and discussions, which we aim to partly record and make available with limited access. We kindly invite you to submit abstracts on your relevant work addressing at least one of the three CACTI goals:

  1. Characterize ERFs and assess adjustments from historical and future changes in atmospheric composition and SLCFs emissions in global models
  2. Quantify the climate and air quality responses to global and regional changes in SLCF emissions
  3. Understand the Earth System feedbacks through chemistry and aerosols in response to anthropogenic climate change

Abstract submission is open until 02 May 2023 and can be done by completing this form. Details on how to register will be announced in due course. Further details, including practical information for arranging travel, can be found on the CACTI webpage.
Further announcements will be made through this CACTI mailing list. If you have not signed up yet, we encourage you to subscribe by sending an email to ed.ra1696174747moeg@1696174747nioj-1696174747itcac1696174747.
We look forward to receiving your abstracts and seeing you in June.

Deadline approaching: Abstract submission to the Hunga Tonga Impacts workshop

This Friday is the Abstract deadline (21st April) for the online “Hunga-Tonga impacts” open science workshop (Tue 16th & Wed 17th May 2023).

SPARC has established a new cross-activity focus project on the impacts from the 2022 Hunga-Tonga Hunga-Ha’apai eruption (HTHH) and will co-ordinate a 2025 “Hunga-Tonga impacts report” aligned to the 2026 UNEP/WMO Scientific Assessment of Ozone Depletion.

We invite Abstracts on the full breadth of science around the Hunga-Tonga volcanic cloud and its impacts, The workshop aims to encourage collaboration and discussions towards the Hunga-Tonga impacts report, and we invite interested scientists from the atmospheric science and geoscience communities to join the meeting to hear latest findings on the eruption’s effects

The online meeting will be 2 half-day sessions (13:00UT to 17:30 UT), with Hunga-Tonga science talks, and the workshop website hosting links for discussion of online poster PDFs.

Abstract submission is via the workshop website (during registration):

We are grateful to SPARC for sponsoring the event, registration is £30 standard and £15 for ECR/students.
