Moderated by: Daniela Seel DEU editor, poet | Arne Riedel DEU Ecologic Institute

Extremes of temperature and tornadoes are occurring ever more frequently. The polar ice is retreating, and the rising sea level has already engulfed the first inhabited Pacific islands. Climate change is threatening the human race. But what do two degrees of global warming actually mean, and what happens if they are exceeded? Poets are reacting to these facts. This Poetry Talk will involve a discussion in political as well as poetic terms of what poetry can contribute to the subject of climate change and what it can do to raise awareness of the topic.

English-German interpreting will be available for this event.

The Poetry Talk: World climate poetry summit is taking place in co-operation with the Forum Berlin of the Friedrich Ebert Foundation and the Ecologic Institute and is made possible with the kind support of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the British Council, the Danish Arts Foundation and the Royal Danish Embassy Berlin and ECHOO Konferenzdolmetschen.
