QUB and the Planetary Crisis: What is to be Done?

Organisation Centre for Sustainability, Equality & Climate Action
Date 8th June 2021 12:00 PM (GMT)

This meeting is to invite all QUB staff and students to come and discuss how we think the University should respond to the climate crisis.

Despite the fact that the UK Parliament, the Irish Dáil and the NI Assembly and Belfast City Council have all declared ‘Climate and ecological emergencies’, we have not seen any emergency response from these government bodies…or from Queens University.

What should our response be? How should education provision, research, engagement with external stakeholders or purchasing decisions by QUB change and transform in light of the planetary crisis?

The event will be chaired by Prof John Barry, co-director of the Centre for Sustainability, Equality and Climate Action, and open with some short remarks from a selection of members of staff and students before open discussion.
