Hear from Lincoln's Experts

In 2019, the University of Lincoln declared a climate emergency. As a result of this, we committed to work with our local community to utilise education and research in order to reduce our environmental footprint.

As a key focus of this commitment we have devised a series of virtual seminars, open to the public, to share insight into the wide-ranging impacts of climate change and illustrate potential solutions.

Take a look at the upcoming talks below. You can watch the sessions live at the time, or catch up with them at a later date by visiting the College of Science YouTube channel.
