Women and girls in Climate Change Science

11F international(4)

BC3 organize a special event on 11 February to celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science.

A career in climate change research is a professional option in the Basque Country and a reality for women. In this special event, BC3 researchers will talk about their personal and professional experiences, the challenges they are facing and will show us the importance of gender mainstreaming in climate change research and action.

This event, which is organised within the framework of BC3 Responsible Science and Innovation Programme, is a special feature of our Training Caravan (Ikertzaileak gelan) initiative. This initiative, now in its 11th edition this year, aims to provide secondary school students in the BAC with answers to core climate change issues based on the most rigorous current scientific understanding while making a career in research interesting for students.

Since 2010, we have been working to awaken scientific vocation among students in the BAC, to bring research careers into the classroom and to promote the design of inclusive and sustainable science and innovation.

This special event will feature the experiences of:

With Marta Olazabal | Axa Postdoctoral Research Fellow as event moderator.
