Master of International Affairs
Tobias Bernstein works as a Consultant at the intersection of international climate policy, climate diplomacy and migration. He is certain that the ideas and policies to push forward the much-needed urgent climate action are already out there, they just need to be conveyed to the right people. Tobias therefore focuses on informing policy makers on the most effective ways to tackle the pressing societal shifts arising from a changing climate.
“Collecting and analysing innovative ideas and distilling them into a format people can use and understand is necessary in a time of information overload, especially when faced with the society-overarching challenges that climate change presents. My work at adelphi allows me to work closely with governments, ministries, and state agencies and to get the right people in the same room to present ideas that can help chip away at these challenges.”
