The Academy’s Climate Group seeks to strengthen the contribution of the basic sciences to solving the green transition with a view to improving climate, biodiversity etc. The central activity consists in organizing meetings with an interdisciplinary character, where the chal-lenges for the green transition are illuminated from the perspectives of all relevant sciences from natural science via the social sciences to the humanities. In November 2020 and 2021, the Climate Group organized two meetings for members of the Academy. The overall themes were, respectively, ‘Translation: From Climate Research to Social and Political Practice’ and ‘How may the (Basic) Sciences be Translated into Concrete Action?’. In May 2022, a workshop will be held that is addressed to the wider scientific community with the theme of ‘Barriers for Action in the Green Transition as Seen from an Interdisciplinary, Scientific Viewpoint’
