Professor Kevin Anderson, Deputy-Director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at the University of Manchester, will give a public lecture on 23 January 2018 hosted by the CPRE Northwest Regional Group.

Professor Anderson is also chair of energy and climate change at the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering (MACE) at the University of Manchester and a non-executive director of Greenstone Carbon Management.

He engages widely across all tiers of government (UK and Sweden) on issues ranging from shale gas, aviation and shipping to the role of climate modelling (IAMs), carbon budgets and ‘negative emission technologies’. His analysis previously contributed to the framing of the UK’s Climate Change Act and the development of national carbon budgets.

Climate change is a major issue for our future energy use, health, our towns and cities but it will also have a dramatic impact on our countryside, too. In this event we will begin to highlight those impacts and explore how in the North West we can help to build the resilience of our natural environment.

The Tyndall Centre is a network of universities and researchers from relevant disciplines considering more sustainable responses to climate change. It works with leaders in both the public and private sectors to promote informed decisions on mitigating and adapting to climate change. 

Its cutting edge, interdisciplinary research, provides a much needed conduit between scientists and policymakers. With nearly 200 members ranging from PhD researchers to Professors, the Tyndall Centre represents a substantial body of the UK’s climate change expertise from across the scientific, engineering, social science and economic communities.

CPRE is strongly supports knowledge based on robust evidence and advocates best practices relating to sustainable development. This commitment led to the invitation to the Tyndall Centre, and we are delighted that Professor Anderson will update CPRE on the current science relevant to climate change and sustainable development.

This special lecture for CPRE members and the public will take place on 23 January 2018 at 10.30am (doors open at 10am) at the Friends' Meeting House in Manchester.

The event is free but we do ask that you register for a ticket via the Eventbrite link below.
