Upcoming event

Climate changed

It’s arguably the most critical issue of our time.
But how aware are we of climate change’s likely tangible impacts?

In this special year-end Research Tuesdays forum, four leading University of Adelaide researchers will discuss:

• what past climate change events can tell us about how Earth’s systems will react in future
• how climate change will exacerbate existing threats to species and ecosystems, including land clearance and introduced pests
• the major barriers to biodiversity conservation, and policy tools that can overcome them
• how complexity in our critical systems, such as food, energy, water and transport, is driving costly political and commercial uncertainty
• why we must all integrate understanding of climate change impacts into our every thought and action—and how we can do it.

At times confronting, frequently challenging, but ultimately inspiring, this is an opportunity not to be missed.

Date: Tuesday, 12 November
Time: 5.30pm
Location: The Braggs Lecture Theatre, North Terrace campus, Adelaide
