Following the success from the Climate Exp0 virtual conference held in May last year, the COP26 Universities Network will be hosting the Climate Risk Summit, which will be taking place virtually, on 29 September - 1 October.

The Climate Risk Summit will provide a forum for discussion of climate risk topics and aims to bring key climate risk information to the attention of a wider audience in advance of COP26.

Online, free, and open to all, it’s an opportunity to connect policy, academic and student audiences both nationally and internationally. In addition, the summit will build capacity in the community of climate change academic experts in communicating risk effectively to different audiences.

The conference will take place over 3 days, complete with panel sessions and workshops to tackle the following:

  • 29 September Day One: ‘Characterising Climate Risks'. Three 90 minute sessions between 11.15AM and 4.15PM
  • 30 September Day Two: 'Building Resilience to Climate Hazards'. Three 90 minute sessions between 11.15AM and 4.15PM
  • 1 October Day Three: ‘Communicating Climate Risk – an Interactive Workshop’: A series of sessions led by experts from the UCL Climate Action Unit and the Analysis Under Uncertainty for Decision-Makers Network.
