Climate Change: Disaster or Opportunity?
This event is open to all those interested in climate change and its effects on human populations. We will be asking the question: While climate change will undoubtedly have negative impacts, does it also hold the potential for new social, economic and political opportunities? This one-day conference will include a variety of lectures, panel discussions and workshops on the theme of climate change and related policy - from the grassroots to the global stage. It will feature cutting edge work in climate related research and policy, with a focus on interdisciplinary perspectives, and will be of interest to students, policymakers, academics and members of business and the NGO community.
