Join us for an event celebrating the successes of The Dear Green Bothy and discussions on how we can develop the project in the future.

About this event

Bothy Conversations brings together researchers drawn from the arts and humanities, the social and natural sciences, and members of different publics and communities, to discuss the development of collaborative, interdisciplinary and multi-perspective approaches for researching and understanding climate change and crisis.

This public event builds on the success of The Dear Green Bothy, a College of Arts-led programme of creative activity for COP26. In Bothy Conversations, we will:

• Further discuss the opportunities (and challenges) for undertaking collaborative climate research;

• Showcase examples of current interdisciplinary or collaborative work;

• Explore the potential for research, community-building, and future collaborations.
