About this event

Take a glimpse into our climate future with Sci-Fi Series: Earth 2050, on Thursday, 10 September, 12:30pm AEST.

About this Event

Let’s imagine we are now in the year 2050.

Though science predicted the certainty of climate change many decades before, we were collectively preoccupied with more immediate matters and did not make the future health of our planet a priority. So how are we living our daily lives?

We invite you to join us for the next webinar in the Sci-Fi Series: Earth 2050 on Thursday, 10 September from 12:30pm (AEST), where we’ll take a futuristic look at climate change and what the year 2050 may hold if we continue ‘business as usual carbon emissions’. 

Taking lessons learnt from the current global health crisis, and behavioural change research, we will then discuss how we can positively shift our response to climate change so that the outlook is not so stark.

Joining the discussion:

  • Professor Emma Johnston AO – Dean, UNSW Science
  • Professor Benjamin Newell (PhD ’01) – Professor of Cognitive Psychology & Deputy Head of the School of Psychology, UNSW Science
  • Professor Katrin Meissner – Director, Climate Change Research Centre, UNSW Sydney
  • Dr Mark Ooi – Senior Research Fellow, Centre for Ecosystem Science, UNSW Science

If you are unable to tune in for the livestream, we will also be recording the event. Please be sure to register so we can send you the link to the recording post-event.
