‘Universities in the face of a planetary crisis’ in conjunction with UCU at QUB

The scientific evidence for our planetary crisis is overwhelming, not least in relation to climate breakdown and the loss of biodiversity. How should universities respond to climate emergency?

We have seen a rapid response over the past 18 months to the Covid crisis yet despite the evidence for the planetary crisis and that the UK Parliament, the Irish Dáil and the NI Assembly have all declared ‘Climate and ecological emergencies’, we are not seeing the same response to the planetary crisis.

How should universities face this crisis? This event will look at the role of universities, their education provision, research, stakeholder engagement and procurement policies in light of the planetary crisis.

Location: QUB Peter Froggatt Centre - 02.026

Time: 7 - 9pm

 

Part of the COP26 series organised by the Centre for Sustainability, Equality and Climate Action at QUB and Belfast Climate Commission
