A level Climate Change Day
  • University of Plymouth

Save event

Sixth form and college groups are invited to find out more about the degrees offered through our School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences as well as revising key topics around climate change, which are of relevance to A levels in Geography, Geology and Environmental Science and demonstrate the application of Chemistry to climate change science.

Our planet is facing climate change unlike that witnessed previously by humanity, and will require skilled scientists to investigate and develop solutions to the problems caused by our warming planet. 

Come and find out about the science of climate change, from world experts at the University of Plymouth.
