The ongoing effect of climate change represents one of the greatest natural and societal challenge facing humanity. E3 is a flagship development at Trinity College Dublin that brings together engineers, natural scientists, computer scientists and statisticians to develop new educational and research capacity in Engineering, the Environment and Emerging Technologies. Through E3, Trinity is undertaking research in this critical field which includes the study of past, present and likely future patterns of climate change and its ongoing and accelerating detrimental effects on biodiversity, landscapes and infrastructure, as well as research into the societal and economic impacts of climate change.
In this webinar, Trinity’s Dean of the Faculty of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Professor Sylvia Draper, will lead a panel discussion with Professors Laurence Gill (Environmental Engineering) and Jennifer Mc Elwain (Chair of Botany) on how Trinity’s research and educational programmes are informing our understanding of the drivers and impacts of climate change. They will look at the solutions emerging from Trinity’s research that are guiding government policy on mitigating the effects of climate change.
