Murdoch University’s Climate Change Teaching Network is hosting an event designed to foster discussion about how we live and respond to challenges posed by a warming world.

Lecturer Dr Davina Boyd said a key part of Climate Talk on October 14 would be the Q&A session hosted by Mayor of Fremantle and Murdoch Senior Lecturer Dr Brad Pettitt.

“The Climate Q&A will bring together practitioners, impassioned people, researchers, teachers and students to discuss burning questions and dilemmas relating to climate change,” Dr Boyd said.

“Dr Pettitt will host a panel of six including former state minister for planning and infrastructure Alannah MacTiernan, Energy Studies Professor Philip Jennings and Director of the Conservation Council WA Piers Verstegen.”

The Climate Talk event also includes the performance of Dystopia, a play showing the fall out after a post-global warming apocalypse, a workshop for academics that teach and research climate change, a creative exhibition by sustainability students and a sundowner.
