Supporting the climate emergency
This event is part of a two-part panel discussion where we will show how we’re connecting our research, education and sustainability agendas to address the global climate crisis.
With leading experts from across the University, the panel will discuss the science behind this global emergency and consider societal responses and potential solutions.

Climate Change: A society in crisis?
Continuing the discussion, the panel – comprising experts from across the arts and humanities, social science and policy perspectives – will consider climate resilience from a social and cultural viewpoint. Key questions will focus on how people conceptualise, imagine and articulate knowledge about climate change, how climate change risk is communicated, the importance of place in understanding climate change risk, and how we might prepare for uncertain climate futures.
