The University of Edinburgh will be supporting and delivering a range of events throughout the academic year 2015/16 to raise public awareness of the 21st session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21/CMP11).
Edinburgh Action for the Climate will harness the expertise of the University’s many academics currently conducting ground-breaking research into areas such as carbon capture and storage and renewable energy.
The University’s aim is to become a hub within the wider city for the exchange of ideas and opinions about how best to tackle one of the world’s great global challenges.
Both staff and students are invited to attend.
Events may be photographed and/or recorded for promotional or recruitment materials for the University and University approved third parties.
