Opening Keynote Address: Innovation in a Changing Climate


Event Status

Series curator Professor Tim Flannery kicks off the programme with a wide-ranging analysis of the current state of the Climate Change debate. Public understanding and political responses have come a long way from when The Weather Makers was published five years ago. How and why has progress slowed in the past six months? What are the key issues facing us post-Copenhagen? What does innovation mean in this context? And how are we to live, better, in this Brave New World we face?
