About the event:
Our special guest, Sophie Thomas, will kick off the evening with a short talk sharing her perspective on 'Climate Choices: What to do and how to do it? The choices we have to make.' This will be followed by a group of students talking to Sophie about their projects, outlining how their ideas respond to the challenges they've explored in different contexts. Sophie and the students will then reflect on some areas of interest at which point the audience will also be invited to join the conversation.
