Climate change is the greatest environmental challenge of our time. With the United Nations (UN) climate summit (COP26) taking place in Glasgow this November, all eyes will be on the events outcomes in support of a cleaner, greener and healthier world.
As part of a nationwide campaign by the Climate Coalition, The Deep in Hull will be supporting ‘The Great Big Green Week’ from 18-26th September to highlight the need for urgent action on climate change, ahead of COP26 and the United Nations Climate talks. Family friendly science demonstrations will be held on the weekends of the 18/19th and 25/26th of September at The Deep.
The campaign will see thousands of people across the UK organising local festivals and event, aiming to draw attention to climate change, the destruction of the natural world, whilst connecting communities with key issues and showcasing effective actions to tackle climate change.
On Tuesday 28th September from 6:30pm, The Deep will be hosting a relaxed evening of drinks accompanied by talks on climate change from researchers from the University of Hull, including Dr Cath Waller and official COP26 Public Engagement Ambassadors Dr Agota Mockute and Dr Christina C. Roggatz.
Katy Duke, CEO at The Deep said “The Deep are delighted to show our support for The Big Green Week and highlight climate change issues with a laid back evening of talks covering topics such as offshore wind, micro plastics and marine chemical ecology. We hope to inspire our visitors to help make a positive change for the climate and for nature.”
Tickets for the event are just £5 and can be booked at www.thedeep.co.uk with attendees on the night receiving a free Day Plus Pass for The Deep which offers free return visits for 12 months.
