People get ready: latest report from the Adaptation Sub-Committee

With hotter summers, wetter winters and a steady increase in extreme weather events certain for the remainder of the 21st Century, the need to adapt our cities, our homes and our communities to changes in climate is pressing and impossible to ignore.

The North West Climate Change Partnership (NWCCP), part of Climate UK, will be hosting a satellite launch of the latest Adaptation Sub Committee (ASC) annual progress report to Parliament.
The ASC is part of the Committee on Climate Change and is holding a series of these events to coincide with the national launch in London. In partnership with the ASC and Climate UK, the NWCCP will be hosting one of the events at:

The Cordingly Lecture Theatre, Humanities Bridgeford Street Building,
Manchester University, M60. 1QD.
Wednesday 9 July, 09:30 - 11:00 

The launch event will be hooked up via the web to the national launch event with Lord Krebs, the chair of the ASC, so that participants can see the slides and hear his commentary, the organisers are also hopeful that the technology will allow them to ask questions and hear answers.
Places are free but limited and if the event is oversubscribed priority will be given to members of the North West Climate Change Partnership. Places can be requested via the partnership’s Eventbrite page.
