Event description

Description

Organised as part of the ESRC Festival of Social Sciences, ‘Climate change: How do we respond?’ is an engaging public event that offers a space for shared learning and dialogue around climate change and societal responses. Aimed at a general audience, the event features speakers who will critique key challenges facing our society and planet.

Prof. John Barry (Queen's University Belfast (QUB)) will open the discussion by outlining some of the causes and consequences of climate change. Prof. Kevin Leyden (NUI Galway) will examine sustainability in the context of planning sustainable communities. Dr Amanda Slevin (QUB) will consider the challenges of energy production and consumption, highlighting the necessity of social science research for understanding, and finding solutions to, collective problems. Dr Peter Doran (QUB) will discuss the rise of the Mindful Commons, exploring links between political ecology, the ‘attention economy’ and the rise of the commons as a paradigm for new activism.

With opportunities for audience participation, we (speakers and participants) will explore solutions to these problems, focusing on avenues for change at individual, community and societal levels.
