Conference of the day

Climate Change: Swiss realities and Swiss future

Even though climate change has been recognized by the majority of Swiss citizens as the main threat that Switzerland faces in the near and long-term future, many still do not understand what climate change means for Switzerland, what can be done to limit it and what needs to be done to prepare for the inevitable impacts it will bring.
