23 March at 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Ahead of the International Panel on Climate Change meeting in Christchurch in March 2018, the University of Canterbury is delighted to co-host, with Ngāi Tahu and Royal Society Te Apārangi, a free public discussion about new approaches to teaching and talking about climate change, which will be helpful for students, journalists, teachers and the public.

With recent record high temperatures and severe weather events causing flood and coastal damage many citizens of all ages reporting an increasing sense of anxiety and confusion, so how can we effectively teach climate change issue while moving beyond the inertia that is often associated with anxiety and confusion?

We are pleased to be joined in this panel by an exciting panel of climate communication experts, lead by IPCC Head of Communication WGIII: Dr Marion Ferrat
