CLIMATE SYMPOSIUM: “A WORLD WITHOUT…..”

This Friday, 27th July – 1pm – I’m very excited to be joining Fiona Talkington (BBC Radio 3 presenter and festival curator), and 3 other panelists to talk about “ice, climate change, silence, darkness and beyond”. It’s going to be a really interesting cross-over between what I’ve been doing as part of the Reading Climate Change Partnership, and my other world as a musician.

CDP cities logo Reading added to Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) ‘A’ List
23 November 2021

I am very happy to see that Reading has been added to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) 'A' List on Climate Action. Out of more than 1000 towns and cities worldwide, Reading is one of just 95 towns (10 in the UK) to receive top score on climate action. It has been great to be a part of that journey with the ReadingCAN (Climate Action Network). Knowing that the town has a strong strategy and adaptation plan is a really important part of that. Fingers-crossed that we can keep up the momentum for the future.

I am delighted to be on the panel for this event on Friday 26 November: As our climate changes, how do we protect British landscapes and encourage resilience amongst their local communities ? Join us to discover how communities have coped with environmental change in the past and the lessons we can all learn from this, as we deal with the effects of climate change happening right now. How are these landscapes altering and what adaptations do we need to make to ensure our management of them is sustainable?
