This week biologist and journalist Sophia Guttenberger, a member of the Munich Environmental Institute will introduce the work and activities of her institution. The Umweltinstitut was founded in 1986 in the wake of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, motivated by the search for independent information on radiation exposure. Over the last decades activities have expanded into many areas of environmental concern including climate change, energy policy, agriculture, genetic engineering, trade policy and consumer protection.
The discussion will be broadcast live from the Rachel Carson Center (RCC). To join the zoom discussion, please register in advance via this link.
