Climate, COVID and COP26

May 21, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


As all nations grapple with the impacts of Covid-19, climate change has not gone away. If the recovery packages being developed around the world are not green then our climate future may be blacker than ever.

  • Will Covid-19 derail climate action?
  • Can this global pandemic teach us anything about to tackling the climate emergency?
  • What should the delayed United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow next year deliver?

In this special online Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation event to discuss ‘Climate, Covid and COP26’ the world-renowned climate scientist and communicator Professor Katharine Hayhoe will be joined by leading experts drawn from across the University of Edinburgh community – including Prof Elizabeth Bomberg, Dr Sarah Ivory and Dr Hannah Ritchie – giving insights into the politics, business, science and communication of climate change in a post-Covid world.
