Professor Hayhoe will speak about climate change in the context of her recent book entitled “Saving Us: A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World”, of which a Dutch translation has just come out. She argues that when it comes to climate change, facts are only one part of the equation. We need to find shared values in order to connect our unique identities to collective action.


Professor Katharine Hayhoe is an atmospheric scientist whose research focuses on understanding what climate change means for people and the places where we live. She is the Chief Scientist for The Nature Conservancy and a Horn Distinguished Professor and Endowed Professor of Public Policy and Public Law in the Department of Political Science at Texas Tech University. Her book, “Saving Us: A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World,” was released in September 2021 and she also hosts the PBS digital series Global Weirding, currently in its fifth season. Katharine has been named one of TIME's 100 Most Influential People, the United Nations Champion of the Environment, and the World Evangelical Alliance’s Climate Ambassador.
