Event description

Description

Our speaker, Chris Beales, will give a brief overview of some of the risks to physical and mental health and wellbeing that a changing climate could pose.

The risks are significant, however there are great opportunities for all of us in Reading if we tackle the climate change challenge sucessfully, and Chris will share a really positive vision for the future of the town. There will also be plenty of time for disussion.

This is a great time to be talking about this topic as the Third Reading Climate Change Strategy is currently in development - see https://readingcan.org.uk/strategy-consultation-interview.

About the speaker - Chis Beales

Chris Beales is the current Chair of the Reading Climate Change Partnership, and he has been on the board since 2016 where he represents the Environment Agency. His interest in Climate Change goes back to his University days and lead him to create a climate change information website (www.chrisbeales.net) to try and help make sense of the issue. He then became more involved within the Environment Agency looking at: risk assessments for our river catchments; concepts for adaptation planning; and how to communicate climate change issues with colleagues.
