A panel of literary scholars and climate change and bird species experts will address the following questions:

  • What impact is climate change going to have on migratory bird species in the North-West and beyond? 
  • What will be lost in terms of the impact on the natural and built environment and in terms of our imaginative and spiritual connection to the world of birds?
