The 2016 Happold Foundation Lecture – Climate Change: Been there, seen that, proved it?

Dr Emily Shuckburgh OBE, Head of the Open Oceans Research Group for the British Antarctic Survey talks through her personal experience of climate change, the evidence-based scientific story behind climate change, her long term projections and what she feels the implications of this will be at a local level.

The lecture will be followed by a panel debate to explore whether COP21 went far enough, how the UK Climate Change Act may need to change and how the engineering community can respond.

The evening aims to cut straight through the rhetoric and promote both thought and action among: students, designers, academics, clients, institutions, managers, innovators, entrepeneurs and policy makers.

The event at the Institution of Engineering and Technology, London is FREE but booking is essential.

The Happold Foundation Lecture is an annual lecture series which aims to follow in the footsteps of the Happold Medal Lecture series which started in 1998 and was supported by the Happold Trust and organised by the CIC. Previous Happold Medal speakers have included Sir Crispin Tickell, Amory Lovins, Tessa Tennant, and Sir Howard Bernstein.

The Happold Foundation’s mission is to have growing influence in the development of a community of people working to improve the built environment.
