Sat 4 November 2017 13:00 – 17:00 GMT

Windrush Millennium Centre, Alexandra Road, Moss Side

Book here.

 

Come join us to learn more about the Caribbean and explore the threats of climate change on the region. Through a range interactive activities for all ages the event will include; short talks and presentations, a debate, and hand-on activities for children and families.

People in the Caribbean face an uncertain future as climate change unfolds. Already the impact is being felt disproportionately by black people globally. ‘1.5 to stay alive’ was the slogan chosen by Caribbean governments who’ve called for global temperature rises to be limited to no more than 1.5c. Anything over and above that spells climate chaos for the region!

The day will include;

  • 1.5 to Stay Alive – the Caribbean Experience
  • Island hopping! Quick time travel through the living history and current climate concerns of several Caribbean islands
  • Who fund science and does it matter? (BSA Future Debates)
  • Living with Nature: Biomimicry, Indiginous ‘ways of knowing’, and engineering for a better world.
  • Various environmental science themed Arts and Maker activities
  • Caribbean food and Artistic entertainment

The event is open to all communities with an interest in the climate of our planet, the Caribbean region, the future of its people and their culture.

NB: Your FREE ticket includes Caribbean food and entertainment – come and enjoy!

NB: the venue is fully accessible
