Climate change impacts many areas including inter-generational justice; biodiversity; health; business and economics; immigration and defence; moral and humanitarian questions.

Concerned citizens not only need to be aware of these impacts but should have an understanding of the science around climate change, and even more importantly, the potential solutions that are available and becoming more and more practical.

This session will provide the audience with the basics of why climate change is occurring and what we can do to mitigate it, and will focus on the questions ‘Must we change?’, ‘Can we change?’ and ‘Will we change?

Hope you can come along and enjoy time with fellow members.
