Future Dialog


IFAT Future Dialog

The IFAT Future Dialog will be the official opening event of the IFAT Media Dialog and takes place on January 23, 2018 at 13:00 p.m. at the ICM, room 14c.

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 will discuss the chances and risks: Are environmental technologies even able to withstand weather extremes? What are the strategies of the future?

Among the participants are 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 takes place on January 23, 2018 at 13:00 during the IFAT Media Dialog – the press event prior to IFAT 2018.
