Climate Change - it's not just the weather!
5 November 09
The University of Bradford is hosting a public event on Wednesday, 18 November, 2009, that will clarify what is happening to our climate and the impact of climate change on all our lives.
In the countdown to the December 'UN Climate Change Conference' in Copenhagen, this public discussion will explore what changes are happening in the climate, and what this means for human societies around the world.
Aiming to clarify the facts, consider future scenarios and reflect on possible outcomes from the Climate Change Conference, this event is the first in a series of lectures entitled 'Participation Bites', creating space to explore some of the major issues of our times.
The event, will include speakers from the University, a climate change display from the New Economics Foundation that will be available to try out, and will end with a showing of the film 'The Age of Stupid', the new four-year epic from McLibel director Franny Armstrong.
Lisa Cumming, Community Associate and organiser of the public event said, "In the run up to Copenhagen the Department of Peace Studies are thrilled to invite members of the public to hear from leading thinkers who will clarify what is known about climate change and what it means for us all. We are hearing about Climate Change all the time these days, and this event will help to really understand what it means."
The lecture starts at 5.45pm in The Barn in the Horton Building at the University. Places are free but must be booked in advance by visiting www.bradford.ac.uk/events/climate
