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.


Dr Emily Shuckburgh, Head of Open Oceans, British Antarctic Survey, will speak on Data Analytics for Climate Decision-Making. There will be a response from Dr Thomas Walters (Senior Research Scientist, DeepMind).
