Many people are interested in the Earth's future and heard something about dramatic Arctic climate changes but often are not sure whether it is true or false - Igor's lecture may help to find out. Igor's lecture of about 1.5 hours cover topics around global to local climate change with an activity highlight and discussions of Arctic Amplification. His light and comfort lecture contains basic terms, explanations, animations, videos from expedition, funny pictures, memes and most important - activity for the audience. Of course, the MOSAiC expedition as a unique international project and the personal experience of the MOSAiC School is the focus of the lecture.

Igor's lecture format fits to "Bar lectures" and will be adapted for serious reports in his University, like he did on 14 April 2020 for an online talk for master student in his alma mater, the Russian Hydrometeorological University, Ecology faculty. He has presented in St. Peterburg City Centre at the bar "Бакалавриат" (Bakalavriat or Bachelor`s programme) to around 30-40 interested people of all ages. A recording of this lecture is available here (in Russian). Igor has created a timelapse video of his presentation and added English subtitles.
