This talk will focus on understanding the systems that underpin the climate emergency in order to help us understand the solutions. We will explore how humans have influenced the carbon cycle and what impact this is having on climate and ecological systems. We will then explore the role of ecological systems and our energy systems in how we can tackle the climate emergency and build a more sustainable future.
Professor Zoe Robinson is Professor of Sustainability in Higher Education at Keele University.
