The Earth Systems and Climate Change Hub is now reaching middle age (but no midlife crisis in sight). Since its inception in 2015, the Hub has worked to build a collaborative community among its partner organisations; the Bureau of Meteorology, CSIRO and Australian universities including the University of NSW, ANU, Monash University, the University of Melbourne and the University of Tasmania (all involved in CLEX).
It is February of 2032, and Canberra is living and breathing a warmed climate. Temperatures have climbed above 40 °C. Drought across south-east Australia has drained Canberra’s water supply, while bushfires burn the neighbouring national parks. This was the hypothetical scenario given to 40 or so young professionals from a range of professional backgrounds (defence, engineering, finance, state/federal government, academia, medicine) who attended the Earth Systems and Climate Change (ESCC) Hub’s latest Young Professional event.
