Climate Change


Already the world is warming, ice is melting, oceans are acidifying, and sea-levels are rising. Ahead we face worsening heat waves, and even more severe floods, storms, and bush fire seasons. What’s going on and how can we respond?

The Grand Challenge on Climate Change (December 2015 to December 2017) drew on UNSW’s expertise in science and beyond: crime and international security, health and medicine, energy and engineering, law and justice.

Explore the results, such as the Climate Change Blueprints outlining how we can mitigate some of the worst impacts of climate change and best transition to a zero emissions society, or the creative outcome of scientists meeting scriptwriters at our cli-fi pitch session.

The Grand Challenge on Climate Change was led by Scientia Professor Matthew England, of UNSW’s Climate Change Research Centre.
