The Humboldt Foundation’s new International Climate Protection Fellowship for prospective leaders from threshold and developing countries aims to increase capacity and awareness in the very countries which are likely to be worst hit by the consequences of climate change or already have been. The objective is to create a network which will pool German knowledge and technology and the engagement and expertise of threshold and developing countries. Discover more about the programme in this Newsletter. You can also read articles from the latest Humboldt Kosmos on the conflict between science and religion and on questions of faith in research.
