GLOBAL CLIMATE WEEK
From 19th to 25th October 2020, the world is celebrating Global Climate Week, an opportunity to raise even more awareness on climate change and how we can help the environment!
The current pandemic has helped many become aware of how our modern lifestyle is harmful for all beings, including ourselves, and we thought this was a good time to have virtual events and reach a wider audience.
People and Planet at the University of Bath is happy to announce we will be offering students and local residents a week of talks from inspiring international speakers!
All times are UK-time, and the events will take place via Zoom. Links will be added on this page as well as on our social medias very very soon.
