RSE Investigates… Climate change

Video details

While most of us now realise that climate change is an urgent problem, it can be tricky to know just how we as individuals can respond. From eating less meat to catching fewer flights, what actions should we prioritise? How much will they cost us, both in terms of money and the lifestyles we currently enjoy? And – perhaps most importantly – are we as a society prepared to take the necessary steps?

This panel discussion examined how climate action is understood and delivered on an individual level, explaining how our lifestyles translate into carbon footprints that can either be increased or minimised based on the choices we make across many different facets of our lives. Importantly, panellists will present concrete and expert advice to get people thinking about how they can make more environmentally sound decisions.
