We Change For Life is a project initiated by three scientists,
biologists or climatologist, who wish to raise public awareness about
the emergency to take action to ensure the livability of our planet.
My main concerns about climate change in my researches are the melt of the Greenland ice sheet and the associate sea-level rise. I reduce my carbon footprint in many ways.
Expert in biodiversity, changing towards a sustainable way of life since 30 years, convinced that sustainable living brings happiness and happy to share experiences.
I do not think that there are environmental concerns specific to my field.They are in common with all fields in biological, chemical and biomedical sciences, but here is clearly (…)
Although the Anthropocene and climate change are widely known as scientific issues, they are also significant cultural problems. In literary criticism and ecocriticism, the main (…)
My concern, which sometimes keeps me awake at night, is that we, humans, are threatening the very inhabitability of the only inhabitable planet in the solar system
250 scientists testify about the changes they put into practice in their life to better respect our environment
Huge biodiversity losses are taking place, caused by global warming and accelerated by massive deforestation.
In our daily activities as climate scientists, we see the importance of keeping global warming well below 1.5°C every day in our climate model simulations.
Therefore, I try to (…)
I am professor at UCLouvain. I teach on chemical and environmental engineering.
Individual awareness and efforts are a good thing, but they cannot resolve the ecological problem, and neither can science. The issue is a societal one.
We need a common dream to get everyone on board for a fair and much needed change of lifestyle
My main concerns:
Climate change induces ocean warming, sea level rise, deoxygenation and acidification with consequences on ocean biodiversity and biogeochemical cycles that are (…)
As a researcher working in Central Africa for almost two decades now, I have seen how climate change is not a future challenge. It is affecting the living conditions of rural farmers (…)
As some will know and others are trying to ignore, the world is changing rapidly. Our planet is filling up with people and all that they produce.
Someone once told me this wonderful (…)
I have been working with public and private actors on mitigation and adaptation to climate change for more than 10 years.
In concrete terms, for mitigation to climate change (…)
Climate change threatens animals and humans, so don’t waste time but act
From small changes to a shift of my system of values
I have studied forests and agro-ecosystems on four different continents to understand how human activities and environmental change affect biodiversity, ecosystems, and human health (…)
