Significant climate ambitions have been set out over the past twelve months, on both a global and regional scale: at COP26, and in the Yorkshire & Humber Climate Action Plan. We are at a pivotal moment both in terms of…
What is happening at the University of Leeds that addresses the nexus of climate and agri-food systems? What questions are not being addressed? What should the University be planning for engaging on this issue at COP27? Join us for this interactive event to discuss the above questions and create new networks. We will be joined…
It is broadly understood that climate change poses higher risks to, and places greater burdens on, women. This is increasingly acknowledged within climate policy and practice, but neglects a broader conception of gender, failing to recognise how gender intersects with age, disability, race, class, etc., and often excluding the experiences of men and lesbian, gay,…

This multi-media roundtable event foregrounds the voices and experiences of transgender communities living in Indonesia. It explores how climate change, environmental injustice and the COVID-19 pandemic intersect with deep-seated inequalities rooted in a lack of understanding about gender and sexual diversity. It focuses on the everyday lives and livelihoods of transgender women and men, as…
This seminar will explore the potential intersection of climate change and anti-microbial resistance (AMR), an area that has received little attention. Both AMR and climate change are considered major global health challenges, sharing similar complex, interdisciplinary, and multi-scalar policy constraints. Yet there are a range of additional linkages between climate change and AMR that remain…
