Climate Change Urgency & Action: The road to a better future

Climate Change Urgency & Action: The road to a better future
Our Sustainability Project, led by Council member Hugh Montgomery, will explore where we are in the battle against rising emissions, and what action we can take as a Society and as individuals to do our part.

Our first event Climate Change Urgency and Action: The road to a better future on 22 April to mark Earth Day.

This free seminar will feature 10 speakers from 2pm-5pm who’ll discuss why we need to take action on climate change, and how we can.
