What's the latest science on climate change and what does it mean for our local and regional communities in Australia? How can we best turn the most recent scientific information into a foundation for taking action in our work and in our personal lives? Where are the best sources of up to date information and future scenarios for our changing world?

Join Professor Brendan Mackey, hosted by Dr Michelle Maloney from AELA, as we explore the most recent scientific information, and discuss what it means in practical terms, policy terms and future action.
