Science, politics, knowledge management, innovation and markets all play a role in climate change action, but what is the role of the University of Cambridge as an ‘anchor institution’ for these? Bringing together speakers spanning the worlds of research and policy, this series of events will explore how the multifaceted aspects of climate change action can come together to help us make the right decisions for the long run.

Networking and drinks will follow.


Chris Rapley, Professor of Climate Science at University College London, will speak on Planetary Vital Signs.

Charles Kennel, Director Emeritus of the Sripps Institution of Oceonography, will speak on Walking the Talk after Paris - Climate Risk Management.

This event is free to attend but as places are limited.
