Culture and communications

One of the key issues facing climate scientists is how to best communicate their message to the public and, ultimately, influence policymakers. The morning session of our event (10:00-12:30) will focus on communicating science to the public, including talks and a discussion with a panel of distinguished science communicators. After lunch we will narrow our attention towards the climate and policy, firstly (13:00-15:30) by screening the Emmy and Academy Award nominated documentary 'Racing Extinction', directed by Oscar-winning director Louie Psihoyos. Later during the afternoon (until 18:30) we will have talks by leading scientists and policymakers. In the evening (18:30-19:30, we will have a more lighthearted workshop on science comedy and drinks.
