Life Innovations for the Climate Crisis: PhD research at Queen’s University

Fri 25th June 2021, Online

The growing body of scientific evidence confirming the catastrophic environmental impact of anthropogenic activities cannot be ignored. Urgent responses are required to mitigate the effects of climate breakdown and environmental degradation. Join the Centre for Sustainability, Equality and Climate Action (SECA) as it asks, What ‘life innovations’ are required in the transition to a fair and sustainable future?

Focusing on core issues regarding the sustainable use of land and space, cultural transformations and sustainability transitions, this multidisciplinary conference will bring early career researchers from across Queen’s University Belfast together with leading climate activists and sustainability professionals in the first event of its kind for SECA. This will showcase some of the extensive sustainability PhD research underway at Queen’s in three interactive panel sessions which prioritise discussion and promise to be intellectually stimulating.
