Climate Coasters (presented at the event) are also available for order - see http://climate.anu.edu.au/news-events/anu-climate-coasters-now-available

ANU Climate Update 2018 will present an overview of how our climate is changing and how we are responding to these changes in Australia and around the world. You'll hear from experts, practitioners and leading commentators from across ANU and throughout Australia.

Part 1 will summarise the latest climate research, including a snapshot of newly released 2017 climate data, followed by commentary on emissions policy responses.

Part 2 will move to climate extremes - extreme heat, flooding and frost - and their implications for how we live, work and eat.

Part 3 will discuss corporate responses to climate change.

PART 1 AND 2 ARE BOOKED OUT - PLEASE EMAIL climate@anu.edu.au IF YOU'D LIKE TO BE PUT ON THE WAITING LIST.  

The event will bring together climate researchers, students, policymakers, industry, media and the public. There'll be opportunities for audience questions at the end of each session and plenty of informal discussion during the breaks.
