The Earth’s climate is warming. New temperature records are being set around the world on a regular basis. Severe weather events are becoming more severe and affecting more and more people. In Australia droughts are becoming longer and more severe and winter rainfall in southern Australia is decreasing. How can we adapt to live in this warmer world? What can we do to prepare ourselves for these changes? What impacts are these changes going to have on local, regional and global scales?

If you have queries and questions on how we need to adapt and live with climate change and the possible consequences, here is the chance to have a conversation with some of the leading scientists in their fields.

MC: Dr Kate Auty, ACT Commissioner for Sustainability and the Environment
