Climate change presents the single biggest threat to current and future generations, and its widespread, unprecedented impacts disproportionately burden the poorest and most vulnerable. Following the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change starkest warning yet, urgent action to combat it and minimise its disruptions is integral to the successful implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and the future of the planet.
Join our host, UCD Earth Institute Director, Professor Tasman Crowe and expert panellists John Bell, Director Healthy Planet, DG Research & Innovation at European Commission and Sadhbh O’Neill Lecturer in Climate Policy and former Policy Coordinator for the Stop Climate Chaos Coalition who will be In Conversation with Dr Andrew Jackson.

In November 2019, UCD adopted UCD’s Strategy 2020-2024 ‘Rising to the Future’ within which the first of four strategic themes is ‘Creating a Sustainable Global Society’. As with all four strategic themes, this theme will operate and challenge the University community across all activities, including research, education, operations and engagement.
Hosted on Zoom, these lively, virtual discussions focus on critical global challenges and offer insights for uncertain times. UCD alumni are invited to tune in from home and submit questions for a Q&A session at the end of each interview. Our community of nearly 300,000 alumni is more connected than ever and there is no better time for us to rise to the future and inspire transformational change.
