The interdisciplinary Doctoral Programme Climate Change (DK) at the University of Graz will host the DK Fall School 2022 "Transformation to Climate Neutrality". 

The goal of the fall school is to develop a common interdisciplinary understanding of the challenges in and solutions to achieve climate neutrality. It also intends to support and stimulate students to develop interdisciplinary joint publications. The overall theme "Transformation to Climate Neutrality" is approached from various perspectives (social sciences, normative science, sustainability science, economics, physics) in a number of sessions. Each topic is addressed by a group of faculty members in the field, and complemented by impulse talks by key researchers from the Center of Excellence and doctoral contributions.

The DK Climate Change (DKCC) is an international programme at the University of Graz for outstanding doctoral students in the area of climate change. The PhD programme is characterized by innovative training with a special focus on interdisciplinarity. The researchers collaborate to investigate strategies for the transition towards a low-carbon and climate-robust economy and society. The DKCC thus educates a new generation of excellent researchers and contribute to the transformation by building a shared understanding of the challenges of climate change and by reaching out to societal stakeholders.
