For our 2023 Student Series, we are interested in submissions under the theme of Climate Adaptation.
What does it look like to meaningfully adapt to the climate crisis? As the harsh impacts of climate change become increasingly clear, a focus on mitigation and resilience is no longer sufficient. Radical, systemic shifts to support functioning ecologies and societies are needed to ensure a just and sustainable future.
We’re keen to hear from students exploring diverse areas of climate adaptation, such as food systems change, designing cities, strengthening community resilience in response to climate disasters, and ensuring justice in planning, as well as support for the functioning and flourishing of the more-than-human world.
Contributions may include the following formats:
As a multidisciplinary research institute, we aim to broaden and develop scholarly and public discourse on climate change and other significant environmental issues. Therefore, we welcome students in any degree, majors and disciplines at the University of Sydney to pitch an idea.
Please see SEI’s research themes to learn more about our focus areas, and in particular, the research within our Climate disaster and adaptation and Transitioning Systems themes.
