Climate Emergency: How can individual action be effective?

What are effective ways for individuals to take action in response to the climate emergency, and how can we contribute to a greener future?

9th March 2023, 3:30pm - 5pm, WBS 0.006, University of Warwick, UK

As part of Warwick's Green Week, join the Energy GRP co-leads Professor Mike Bradshaw (WBS), Dr Caroline Kuzemko (PAIS), and Professor Nickie Charles from the Sociology Department Green Team for an interesting and informative event - Climate Emergency: How can individual action be effective?

We will be joined by Professor John Dearing, Southampton University, who is a Green Party Councillor in Kenilworth. He will talk about his career as a Green Councillor for Kenilworth and his research on climate change mitigation.

Through informal discussions and a series of films created by climate mitigation researchers at the University of Cambridge, we'll explore how small actions can make a big impact. We'll also delve into the ways in which individuals can support and drive systemic change.

Our event is open to everyone, whether you're an academic or not, and offers a unique opportunity to learn, engage, and take action towards a sustainable future.

Plus, there will be pizza and refreshments provided to fuel your discussions!
