Forthcoming events

In order to spark new climate conversations, we run and contribute to a wide range of public events.

Oxford launch of our new book, "Talking Climate." Oxford, 2 December 2016, 5pm

Please join us for a discussion around our new book, Talking Climate: From Research to Practice in Public Engagement. Commissioned by Palgrave MacMillan and written by Adam Corner and Jamie Clarke, the book aims to provide a fresh approach to climate change communication: five core principles for public engagement that can propel it out of the margins and into the mainstream. 
 
The event will take place at the Old Fire Station 40 George St, Oxford OX1 2AQ. The event is free but please register here.

Literary Festival: Will Mumbai Drown? Why we ignore climate change. Mumbai, 3 December 2016

George Marshall is on assignment in India and during his time there, will speak at the Times LitFest with environmental journalist Darryl D'Monte about why we ignore climate change.

He will share key insight from his work at Climate Outreach and his book "Don't even think about it - why our brains are wired to ignore climate change". 

Conference: Medact - Healthy Planet, Better World - Bringing the Health community together to address our global ecological crisis. London, 9-10 December 2016

Human health is dependent on a healthy environment. The threats posed by climate change and wider environmental degradation are serious. However, these threats also present a number of opportunities for positive change.

The health community has both a mandate and a vested interest in calling for the social, political and economic actions required to drive through the necessary transformative changes in society. More importantly, their positions in society give them a massive opportunity to influence and shape the way we think and act as a global community. 

Dr Chris Shaw and Alex Randall will be speaking at the conference. Alex will focus on the relationship between conflict, migration and the environment, and Chris will explore better ways of communicating climate change.
