Latest Events and Conferences

The Tyndall Centre holds and contributes to regular events and presentations on climate change issues throughout the country. Through these events we seek to engage with other researchers, key stakeholders such as business leaders, policy advisors, NGOs, agencies and the media as well as the public in general. We also use the events as opportunities to share our research results, promote discussion and raise awareness of climate change issues and potential solutions.

Event Date
Engineering the Climate? Public debate on geoengineering research

Can we engineer our way out of cliamte change?
As climate change intensifies, some scientists have suggested that we might need to... but should we even be considering trying to control the climate in this way?
Come and join leading scientists and campaigners as we debate the motion: "We need to do more research on geoengineering".
