27 November

An evening of climate services, ethics and networking in Leeds.

Join us in Leeds on November 27th for an evening of climate services, ethics, and networking. Throughout the evening, we’ll be exploring ethical questions in climate services from a diverse range of speakers with governmental, non-profit, academic, and private climate service perspectives. A round of lightning talks will introduce you to the ethical questions and dilemmas, exploring questions such as:

  • How should climate services be regulated, if at all, and who gets to decide?
  • How do you ethically convey complex information to a non-expert audience without unintended consequences?
  • How can we best consider vulnerable populations when conducting work in climate adaptation?
  • What ethical quandaries are inherent in communicating risk?
