How will Brexit affect efforts to tackle climate change, in the UK and abroad? What will it mean for policy, law and the wider environment, and what does the future hold for citizens?

Join us for a lively public debate to explore the implications and assess what needs to be done. We're bringing together a panel of diverse experts to clarify the picture and answer your questions.

This free event, part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science, promises much food for thought and a great networking opportunity.
All are welcome and a bar is available.
