The Environmental Sustainability Research Centre, University of Derby, is organising a series of events about climate change science and action, in collaboration with The Union of Students, the Multifaith Centre, the Derby Climate Coalition, and other local partners, to bust through climate change myths, lay out what we do know, and to discuss what we can do about it. It will showcase the University’s research on climate change. It will also highlight the response of local champions to climate change.
In the first event at the Copper Building, One Friar Gate Square, on Wednesday 30th October, from 6.30 to 8.30 pm, Dr Holly Elliott, from the University of Derby, and Tom Veitch, from the D2 Energy Efficiency project at Derby City Council, will give an overview of climate change and talk about how some local businesses are adapting their practices to reduce emissions. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions of the speakers and to discuss the issues raised during the presentations. You can find more information on the event and how to register. Everyone is welcome.
