DASICON 2020

Climate Co-Action 

FRIDAY 28th FEBRUARY , Diplomatische Akademie Wien

#DASICON2020

"Climate change is the defining issue of our time – and we are at a defining moment. If we do not change course by 2020, we could miss our chance to avoid the disastrous consequences of runaway climate change. The time for ambitious Climate-Action is now."

- Antonio Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations

The Diplomatic Academy Students’ Initiative Conference (DASICON) is an annual international conference fully organised by current students of the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna. Addressed to the general public, it provides a space for international experts, interested students, and relevant stakeholders to explore, analyse, and interact.

DASICON 2020 addresses the urgent matter of climate action to counter global warming and its devastating consequences. Under the framework of Climate Co-Action — Joint Solutions to the Climate-Crisis, the conference brings together representatives from the political and diplomatic sector, public society, and the economic realm. Its aim is to underscore the required interplay and collaboration of all three sectors to achieve significant and sustainable solutions to tackle climate change. Our overall goal is to highlight some of the various challenges and opportunities we are faced with, as well as to provide a space to portray best practices in these areas.
