About this event
What is the role of the oceans in climate change?
As we head towards COP26, our expert panel of speakers from France and the UK look at the urgent need to protect the oceans to preserve the climate.
Organised by the French Embassy in the UK, the event will focus on scientific approaches to tackling climate change and protecting marine diversity, and examine what actions are required. Speakers include biologist Françoise Gaill, and marine ecologist and fisheries biologist Bryce Stewart.
Join us and find out more about oceans and climate change as the world prepares for the UN Climate Change Conference UK 2021 taking place in Glasgow from 1 to 12 November.
This is one of two events presented by the French Embassy in the UK exploring important contemporary issues. You may also enjoy Women’s Bodies: Gaining control on Sunday 20 June.
