The UCD Biological Society joined the UCD Earth Institute, the Norwegian Embassy and An Taisce to discuss the challenges facing climate researchers in the face of increasing anti-expert sentiment in public and political discourse.

UCD President Professor Andrew Deeks Opened the discussion panel by welcoming  Norwegian Ambassador to Ireland, Her Excellency Else Berit Eikeland, and commended “Norway’s commitment both to climate research and to strengthening collaboration between Norwegian and Irish researchers.” The Ambassador encouraged the students and researchers present to work collectively to bring about change in climate policy, and extended an invitation to the University research community to collaborate with Norwegian Polar researchers.
