Your three-minute talk can focus on your area of expertise and interest, featuring:

  • Elements of your own climate change-related research
  • Examples where effective communication of trust in climate science has led to positive change
  • Stories of influential role models who are making a difference in terms of building trust in climate science
  • Impactful cultural or localised environmental research activity
  • Innovative science and technological research that could make a big difference to the public in the field of climate change.

Talks relating to COP26 priority areas are welcome (but this is not a requirement):

  • Adaptation and resilience: ‘Helping people, economies and the environment adapt and prepare for the impacts of climate change.’
  • Nature: ‘Safeguarding ecosystems, protecting natural habitats and keeping carbon out of the atmosphere.’
  • Energy transition: ‘Seizing the massive opportunities of cheaper renewables and storage.’
  • Accelerating the move to zero-carb on road transport: ‘By 2040, over half of new car sales worldwide are projected to be electric.’
  • Finance: ‘We need to unleash the finance which will make all of this possible and power the shift to a zero-carbon economy.’
