Students for Sustainable Development – Oikos Vienna supporting the International Conference on Climate Action

Kathrin Zirn, sustainability masters student and member of Oikos Vienna,  spent the last days at the International Conference on Climate Action(ICCA 2019) in Heidelberg and supported the Youth Climate Summit as a moderator. In a wide range of workshops, young people from 15 countries worked on specific political demands that were then presented to leaders, mayors and politicians from around the globe. The ICCA serves as a preparatory event for the next Global Climate Action Summit in September 2019, with a special focus on cities and local action. Thus, leaders gathered in Heidelberg to redesign their policies and targets in line with the < 2 degrees Paris Agreement (as with current plans we are heading towards 3-4 degrees global warming).
