Climate Change, Small Islands and Me

Saturday 6 November, 10.00 - 16.00 

Aerial view of South Pacific island

Clore Balcony, Pitt Rivers Museum

Can a country disappear? This might sound like something from science fiction but climate change is causing global sea levels to rise and could cause some entire low-lying countries to be underwater by the end of this century. We will be asking what a country is and thinking about how climate change is affecting island communities in the South Pacific. Through film, writing and drawing - and talking to our researchers - you'll learn more about climate change, island communities, and think about what we can do to bring about change both locally and nationally.

Suitable for everyone. This is a drop-in activity - just turn up!

This event will be run by Liam Saddington and Daniel Hall, School of Geography and Environment, Steffan Williams, St Catherine's College, University of Oxford.

Part of the 2021 ESRC Festival of Social Sciences.
