Future Dialog


IFAT Future Dialog Panel

The IFAT Future Dialog took place on January 23, 2018 at the ICM in Munich.

Storms, heavy rains, droughts: meteorological institutes have predicted extreme weather events for years now. Today, they affect people in their everyday lives.

At the IFAT Future Dialog “Extreme Weather – are we defenseless?” a panel of experts discussed the chances and risks: Are environmental technologies even able to withstand weather extremes? What are the strategies of the future?

Among the participants were experts from Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, Munich Re, Siemens and Ramboll Studio Dreiseitl. Maxine Mawhinney, former newsreader on BBC News, moderates the panel discussion. The IFAT Future Dialog was being opened by Messe München’s Managing Director Stefan Rummel, who presented the results of the first IFAT Environment Index 2018.
