Community Climate Talk With A Scientist

Date:Sun 04 Sep 2022
Time:3 - 5pm
Venue:J3 (seated show)
Price:Free - (book via link below)

Worried about this summer's severe heatwaves and other climate impacts including flooding and biodiversity loss? Come to our free Community Climate Talk with scientist Dr Charlie Gardner. He will describe how the Climate and Ecological Emergency is affecting us, and local environmentalists will share their stories about taking action.

Dr Gardner, a conservation lecturer and climate researcher, said: “This country has never been this hot before in human history. We need to wake up as a society, and our leaders need to start taking serious action.” He is part of a team of scientists touring 20 towns and cities to discuss the climate crisis, share their knowledge, and help communities respond.

It is a chance for people to share their hopes and fears, meet other concerned citizens, and discuss how we can come together to tackle the emergency. The event is free, with refreshments and snacks provided, so people can mingle, chat and ask questions.

Dr Gardner, who plans to write popular climate science books to reach more people, adds: “The situation is so urgent now because we’ve ignored it for so long. We have a moral obligation to act because this is our world, it’s all we have.”

This event is hosted by Extinction Rebellion Cambridge.

“We're going to be focusing on what it means for us as a society and what it means for us as individuals. How do we as individuals react to this and push for the change that we need when our political leadership is still taking us in the wrong direction.” (Dr Charlie Gardner on BBC Radio).

"His research and writing focuses on adapting conservation to the climate emergency, the role of scientists in advocacy and activism, the researcher-practitioner divide in conservation, community-based approaches to conservation, protected areas, and anything to do with Madagascar and its wildlife.” (University of Cambridge Alumni.)

“He has dedicated his life to conserving nature, training through multiple degrees and stints of volunteering to become a wildlife scientist, publishing dozens of scientific papers, and researching and devising solutions for conserving nature and biodiversity.” (Real Media)
