The scientific consensus about human-induced climate change is both unequivocal and urgent. The challenges we face from this and its subsequent implications, whether it’s from food security to water resource to population growth to our wellbeing mean major challenges for society as we progress through the rest of the century.
Sir David King, the former Chief Scientific Adviser to the UK Government and the new Director of the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment at the University of Oxford, will in his speech, outline the environmental challenges we face and how best they can and should be tackled.
Doors open for registration and coffee at 6pm. The meeting starts at 6.30pm and will be followed by a drinks reception at 8pm, and then an (optional) discussion dinner from 8.30pm to 9.45pm. The discussion dinner will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
