Social Responsibility University news

Climate Action events

On Friday 20 and 27 September worldwide events are taking place to highlight the climate emergency. We are aware that this is an important issue for many of our students and staff alike, just as it is for our University, as you can see from the steps we’re taking in support of the Government’s climate declaration of a climate emergency.

To coincide with these worldwide events there are some events being organised by the Environmental Sustainability Team and the Manchester Museum which are open to students:

Climate Action Talk

Professor Kevin Anderson, chair of energy and climate change at the Tyndall Centre will be sharing the academic evidence behind the global climate crisis and what this means for city-regions like Greater Manchester.

The two talks will take place on Friday 20 September. Students are invited to attend over lunch where Kevin will be presenting at 12pm and 1pm.  The event will be held in Simon Lecture Theatre C. There will be opportunities to ask questions and to share thoughts. Please note this event is on a first-come-first-serve basis.  

Research Showcase

An evening event at the Manchester Museum on Friday 27 September (booking required) will showcase the latest research into ‘the city’, featuring work being carried out on sustainability.
