The Priestley Lecture – ‘From Climate Science to Climate Action?’
Professor Piers Forster
The Leeds Library, 18 Commercial St, LS1 6AL
The impact of climate change on society and ecosystems is a global challenge and in response to this problem, the University of Leeds opened the Priestley International Centre for Climate in 2016. In this year’s annual Priestley Lecture, Professor Piers Forster will explore how science influences international negotiations, national legislation and climate action. By building collaborations across a range of disciplines and expertise, the Centre aims to build practical solutions to a problem that concerns us all.
