Priestley Centre to take part in global climate solutions challenge

The Priestley Centre is recruiting participants to take part in a 24-hour climate change challenge. Promoted by Climate-KIC, the Climathon on 28 October will see Leeds joining a network of more than 100 cities around the world for intensive “hackathon”-style workshops to solve urban climate change problems. The Leeds event, which is tackling domestic energy efficiency in a challenge set by Leeds City Council, is co-organised with the Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy at the University of Leeds. Sign up to the Leeds City page here. More details in News.

About the Centre

The Priestley International Centre for Climate brings together world-leading expertise in all the key strands of climate change research. Climate change and its impact on society and ecosystems is a global challenge. The centre is providing international solutions to meet this challenge.

Effective policy and other social and technical solutions need to be underpinned by robust research and the Priestley Centre’s focus is on new interdisciplinary research partnerships that better link our physical, technological, economic and social understanding of climate change with strategies for mitigation and adaptation.
