Since 2007 the EPA Climate Change Lecture series has hosted national and international experts on a variety of climate change topics. The Lectures are free of charge and open to everyone who registers in advance. In more recent years these Lectures have been live-streamed through our website and subsequently the recordings made available on the EPA's YouTube Channel. The Climate Change Lecture Series has covered many diverse and wide-ranging topics and are essential to the EPA’s commitment to increase public awareness of climate change, its causes, consequences and how we tackle it.
Each 40-minute lecture is followed by a Q&A session chaired in recent years by a well-known presenter of current affairs, Dr John Bowman.
