4. BLIZ meeting and FGG-Event in Erlangen

On October 21st the BLIZ team met again at the FAU in Erlangen. We exchanged ideas and discussed our temporary results, milestones 2020 and further outreach ideas.

In the evening event of the FGG lecture series Anja Rammig, Thomas Knoke and Perdita Pohle presented the BLIZ-project.  Anja Rammig gave an insight into the current state of science on the topic of climate change and the effects of the summer drought 2018 and presented the first results of our project. Using examples, Thomas Knoke examined the situation of forests and forest management and showed how scientific studies quantify the changing risks for forests and forestry and help to establish a more stable forest in the future. Perdita Pohle closed the event with thoughts on ecological and social tipping points and how they can be integrated into a political and social landscape.
