On 11 February BC3 organized a special event to celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science “Women and girls in Climate Change Science”. This event has the aim to show high school students the possibility of 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 talked about their personal and professional experiences, the challenges they are faced and showed us the importance of gender mainstreaming in climate change research and action.
Moxote Potolo Bat company made us a special image (the image on the right) that summarise the message that we try to sent yesterday to all the student that met with us.
This event, which was organised within the framework of BC3 Responsible Science and Innovation Programme, was 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.
