The 2020 RSE/SCRR (Scottish Consortium for Rural Research) Peter Wilson Event.

Professor Colin Campbell FRSE, Chief Executive of the James Hutton Institute, alongside a panel of young climate activists from diverse backgrounds discuss how we can share and work with evidence in rural climate change responses.

In order to produce scientifically sound and socially just solutions, our responses to global climate change must encompass multi-disciplinary evidence from natural science, social science, arts, humanities, and traditional and local knowledge. With so many ways of knowing the world at play, young scientists and civilians are at the forefront of synthesising and communicating these wide-ranging forms of evidence.
