I am looking forward to taking part in a panel discussion about climate change and literature with Mirko Bonné and Chris Rapley. The event is on 17 March at the Goethe-Institut, London and is organised by the Free Word Centre and the Goethe-Institut. Here is the blurb:
Assessing the current political temperature and social climate, Weather Stations is an international project that places literature and storytelling at the heart of conversations about climate change. As the debate around communicating the issue of climate science rages, and the imperative of alerting the world to the impact of our changing climate becomes even more urgent, Chris Rapley, Professor of Climate Science at UCL, reminds us, ‘The whole point about climate change is that it is not really about the science. It is about the sort of world we want to live in and what kind of future we want to create.’
Hear Weather Stations Writer-in-Residence Mirko Bonné in discussion with Tony White, author and former writer-in-residence at the Science Museum, and Chris Rapley, Professor of Climate Science at University College London, previously Director of the Science Museum. The evening will be chaired by Jay Griffiths, the author of A Love Letter from a Stray Moon, and takes place at the Goethe-Institut.
