The webinar was organized at BigBlueButton platform within Jean Monnet Module "Environment, Health and Climate change: Facing the challenges and Adapting to Impacts: Experience of the European Union / 600178-EPP-1-2018-1-RU-EPPJMO-MODULE/CLIMEU”. It attracted more than 70 attendees. 


The project is implemented at the NVSU Department for Ecology and co-financed by European Commission within the framework of Jean Monnet Actions.  

The coordinators of the project are Irina Pogonysheva, Candidate of Biological Sciences, Associate Professor; Denis Pogonyshev,  NVSU First Vice-Rector, Vice-Rector for Research, Candidate of Biological Sciences; Vera Kuznetsova, Candidate of Geographical Sciences, Associate Professor. 

The webinar aims to discuss the possibility of using the experience of European Union on the environment, health and climate change.  

Denis Pogonyshev, NVSU First Vice-Rector and Vice-Rector for Research welcomed participants of the webinar: “There is a growing understanding in the world that climate change is part of the reality. Strategies are being developed to adapt to the climate change, and climate control measures are being improved. The webinar is particularly relevant in the light of the Russian Federation's ratification of the Paris climate agreement…”
