Event description
Inspiration for hope and resilience in the face of climate crisis.

About this Event

Staying positive in the current environmental climate is not always easy.

We've asked 3 leading environmental academics to share what inspires them to keep going in the face of climate crisis.

Dr Lisa Schipper is an Environmental Social Science Research Fellow at the Environmental Change Institute. She is interested in the drivers of social vulnerability to climate change and natural hazards in developing countries, and the role that adaptation can play in reducing that vulnerability.

Dr Monika Zurek is a senior researcher at the Environmental Change Institute leading on a number of projects within the Food Systems Group at the ECI. She also sits on the coordination team of the UK's cross-government Global Food Security Programme on the Resilience of the UK Food System.

Dr Bettina Wittneben's research focuses on the intersection of corporate strategy and climate policy. She currently investigates how the Fukushima accident influenced European policy-making relating to nuclear energy and how companies upscale mitigation options in energy-intensive industries.

Each of our speakers will tell us what personally keeps them going, how they recharge and how they maintain a positive outlook.

They will also give us a glimpse into reasons for hope arising from their current research.
