Bridging Climate Science and Society

The WCRP Open Science Conference 2023 will bring together diverse research communities, programmes and partners to discuss the latest developments in climate science, with an emphasis on science-based information for decision making. WCRP is looking at innovative ways to bridge science and society and to foster future climate science leadership, through workshops, public exhibits, forums, and other associated events.

The following themes will be covered during the conference:

. Recent advances in climate science
. Climate research challenges and opportunities
. Regional climate extremes and risks
. Useful and useable climate information

The Conference will highlight advances and challenges in research on the coupled Earth System. It will feature sessions on modelling, observations, and the development of climate information for society. There will be a strong focus on climate risk, including the consequences, likelihoods and responses to the impacts of climate change, as well as the innovations needed to ensure that climate science information, data, and training are accessible to all those who seek them.

Grand Challenges
The Conference will celebrate the achievements of WCRP’s Grand Challenges. These are extremely successful WCRP activities that will close at the end of 2022.

Conference format and location
