The Priestley Centre for Climate Futures is an interdisciplinary climate research, innovation, and learning centre, using our expertise to shape a better future for our communities, our region and the world.

Through collaboration, we harness our expertise in climate research to develop innovations, deliver education and inform policy for a fair, resilient, and decarbonised world.

We host a community of over 400 researchers from across disciplines including engineering, finance, health, economics, cultural studies, law, and atmospheric sciences.

Our experts have leading roles in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the UK Climate Change Committee, and several city-level climate commissions.

Established as the Priestley International Centre for Climate in 2016, we became the Priestley Centre for Climate Futures in 2023. We’ll be developing our exciting new offerings and initiatives over the coming months. Join our mailing list or follow us on social media to stay up to date: Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube.
