Institute for Environmental Futures

The climate emergency and global species extinction crisis call for urgent action to ensure the future habitability of our planet. The world must achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 to stay below the threshold for dangerous climate change of +1.5°C. The Institute for Environmental Futures carries out transformative and transdisciplinary research into human-environment systems together with our stakeholders and partners. We co-develop policy solutions and innovations towards an environmentally sustainable future.

Environmental Futures Café

Everyone is welcome to join our Environmental Futures Café. It is held every week on Monday from 11.00am - 11.50am between 23 January and 31 March 2023. The theme for these three months is 'Loss and Damage' from climate change. Every week, we will discuss how the COP27 Climate Conference has treated these issues and what different academic disciplines can tell us.

Find us in room G02, Bennett Building (ground floor), University Road, Leicester, LE1 7RH.
