About this event

The Global South undoubtedly bears the brunt of global climate change, biodiversity loss and extinctions, with warming temperatures and unpredictable weather patterns driving economic instability, food insecurity and migration.

Raf de Bont of the University of Maastricht and Henrice Altink of the University of York examine this vital topic, exploring the relationship between humans and animals, scientific ecology and the protection of nature.

This is one of two events presented by the York-Maastricht Partnership exploring climate change, conservation and sustainability. You may also enjoy The Road Towards Sustainable Consumption on Tuesday 8 June.
