Duration: 17:00 – 20:00 (PKT)
Exploring Climate Change, Clean Air and Oceans
Indexed by the changes in climate patterns, the continuous rise in extreme heat and humidity, melting glaciers, the eruption of mega-fire events, and the rapid degradation of ecosystems, everyone is expected to be affected by climate change.
This event will include panel discussions led by Commonwealth Alumni and a guest speaker lecturer on the topic. The format of the event is designed to encourage Commonwealth Alumni to pool their knowledge and identify ways to prepare communities to adapt to the impact of climate change through the development of adaptation strategies and the application of climate related research and science.
If you are a Commonwealth Alumnus from Pakistan would like to attend this event, please contact Haroon Rashid at Haroon.Rashid@britishcouncil.org.pk
