Environment Themed

What’s on offer?

Amrita's Journey: Preparing the aid system for the Climate Emergency 

Convened by HCRI, UK-Med and Save the Children-UK

How does the humanitarian aid system need to adapt to the climate emergency? Meet Amrita, she’s an aid worker trying to answer this question. Join us for this outdoor installation that explores her (fictional) journey from London to the international climate negotiations in Glasgow (Nov 2021). Learn about her experiences as an aid worker and her seven key recommendations for world leaders. As part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science, HCRI, UK-Med and Save the Children-UK, are hosting this event to raise awareness of ways the global community can act to ensure the millions of people affected by the climate emergency in the coming years will get the food, shelter and healthcare they need.

Venue: 'Tin Can Building' University Place, The University of Manchester,  176 Oxford Road, Manchester, M13 9PL.
