Welcome to the future! Is it too hot to handle, or too frost too furious? Let’s break the ice with climate change as we take you on a journey exploring what the future could look like. From policy behind-the-scenes at COP to reimagining dystopian climate futures, this night promises to be more interesting than talking about the weather. Don’t be left out in the cold – come and warm up with this discussion!

Cracking the COP Code: How Does Governance Impact How We Cope with a Changing Climate?

Rachel Harrington-Abrams (PhD student, Department of Geography)
Climate change is here. We need to adapt, but how do we do that? I will unpack the debates around adaptation and loss and damage, lifting the curtain on the key challenges within climate governance at the UNFCCC’s annual Conference of the Parties (COP) and explaining why it matters for everyday people.

Apocalypse Please! Art and Hope in a Time of Crisis

Dr. Rowan Gard (Lecturer in Human Geography)
Is how we learn about climate change too apocalyptic? How can art inspire new hope and reimagine dystopian futures? I will show how hope and creativity are vital for any successful and long-term response to our current situation. Let’s go beyond the apocalyptic and paint a more audaciously vibrant and liveable future.

How High Can We Go?: Predicting the Uncertain Future of Our Planet’s Sea Levels

Dr. Fiona Turner (Postdoctoral Research Associate, Department of Geography)
Climate change’s rising tides are impossible to ignore, especially for nations and coastal cities struggling to adapt. Join me as we explore how models and statistics shape global sea level predictions and how scientists navigate the murky depths of uncertainty. Get ready to dive deep into the fascinating world of sea-level projections.
