Over the course of 2021 the Science and Industry Museum are hosting a series called Climate Talks. These online discussions will see experts, policy makers and activists in the field convenening to have important conversations about the climate crisis.

On the panel is Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, a UN messenger of peace and conservationist

In the first of these events, Climate Change: Why Should We Care? Broadcaster and scientist Dr. Hannah Fry is joined by an A list panel of experts, to open our eyes and bring to light some of the realities of the current situation. Hannah, alongside the panel, will be interrogating how our economies, societies, ecosystems and landscapes will be affected in the years to come as well as the damages already being done. It won’t all be foreboding and hard thinking though, in a lot of cases the negative impacts of climate change can be stopped, reversed or improved if significant action is taken now. You can be sure to leave the talk feeling inspired to take action, whether that is in the form of writing to your MP or taking up large-scale campaigning.

On the panel is Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, a UN messenger of peace and conservationist whose groundbreaking work with wild Chimpanzee has brought public attention to environmental issues for six decades. Joining her is Kira Peter-Hansen MEP, the youngest ever member of the European Parliament as well as a passionate climate advocate. You’ll also hear from Dr Tamsin Edwards, a climate lecturer at King’s College London and Wanjuhi Njoroge, founder of People, Planet Africa and forest conservation activist.

Tune it to hear the progress we’ve made in combating the Climate Crisis as well as the urgent further work which still needs to be done. For more information, talks and events around the subject check out the other events in the Climate Talks series with the Science and Industry Museum.
