Climate Change: “The Challenge of Our Generation”
Whether it is biodiversity, food supply, public health, or transport, climate change is poised to change everything we think we know about our lives and the lives of our children and beyond. The United Nations has called climate change “the challenge of our generation” and scientists are stepping up to the plate in response. Find out what scientists are doing to help mitigate the effects of climate change, in the hopes of leaving a thriving and habitable planet for our generation and those to come!

The four C’s of climate science
What are they, why they matter, and why the last “C” is the most important. What are they? Come to my talk and find out! Dr Winston Chow is an Assistant Professor of Geography at the National University of Singapore researching on how cities affect weather & climate, and how weather & climate affects cities. He is a Principal Investigator for the Cooling Singapore initiative , and was recently selected by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to be a Lead Author for their Cities chapter in the Sixth Assessment Report on Climate Change due in 2021. He enjoys talking and writing about these research issues, and he tweets sporadically on many topics (unrelated to climate change) at @winstontlchow
