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 session to be held at the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford.
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 island 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.
Liam Saddington and Daniel Hall, School of Geography and Environment, Steffan Williams, St Catherine's College, University of Oxford
Open to everyone.
This event will be of particular interest to young people aged 10 to 18 who are interested in climate change, island communities or global politics.
This drop-in event will take place on the Clore Balcony of the Pitt Rivers Museum. Entrance to the Pitt Rivers Museum is via the Oxford University Museum of Natural History, Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3PW. Once inside the Museum of Natural History, walk straight past the dinosaurs and take a left at the statue of Darwin - that's where you will find the Pitt Rivers' arched door. Come down the steps and you'll see our welcome desk.
