The Cambridge Climate Lecture Series is now in its third year of running since being founded in 2017. Its aim is to dramatically increase the level of public interest and engagement on the topic of climate change. We hope that everyone will find something of interest, but we are particularly keen to interact with a younger audience who will have to deal with these issues in the decades ahead.

Our lecture format will feature guest speakers who will each present their take on a particular aspect of climate change. There will be a strong emphasis not only on the current state of our global climate, but on what possible solutions exist and on the actions we need to take.

Apart from an audience in Cambridge, we hope to reach out to many of you throughout the world via our live streaming. Providing you have internet access you should be able to follow events in real time. There will be opportunities for both our local and on-line audiences to ask questions and we very much encourage you to participate on social media using #CCLS2019.

This year’s theme is “Climate Change – Can We Fix It?”, and will feature talks from Sir David King (climate repair), Professor John Schellnhuber (the non-linear problem of climate change, and its’ non-linear solution), Joseph Poore (the environmental impact of food) and Ro Randall (the psychology of having difficult conversations about climate change). The series will finish with a panel discussion on “The future of Gaia (& humanity)”, featuring James Lovelock (famous founder of the Gaia hypothesis), Chris Rapley (former Director of the British Antarctic Survey) and Helen Czerski (physicist, oceanographer and television presenter).
