Can I do anything about Climate Change?
Wed 31 Jul 2019
Do you wonder if altering your diet, cutting down on flights, or declaring a climate emergency makes any difference to climate change? This lively discussion with world-leading speakers from politics, business, activism, and science, will move beyond superficial responses to the vital question Can I do anything about climate change?.
Bring your own ideas to explore these issues together; there is plenty of time for questions and debate. Agile Rabbit is delighted to welcome Penelope Endersby, the head of the Met Office; Piers Forster, lead author of IPCC reports and member of the Committee on Climate Change; Molly Scott-Cato, our regions Green MEP; Danny Chivers, poet, activist and writer; and Steffen Boehm, Professor in Organisation and Sustainability at the University of Exeter. Ritula Shah from the BBCs The World Tonight is presenting the event.
Many of us are inspired to act against Climate Change. But can small individual actions ever make a real difference, or do we need radical activism to bring meaningful change? Perhaps a systems based approach is needed, so the most beneficial outcome is also the easiest. Come along to interrogate the panel, and yourself!
This event is part of the Lovelock Centenary conference and is held in partnership with the Global Systems Institute at the University of Exeter.
