Join special panels of artists, academics and scientists for a series of public debates on climate change throughout November. The debates accompany the premiere of 'Deep Above' at Watershed Bristol, a new film by award-winning artist Adam Chodzko.

We know climate change is happening; we experience extreme weather conditions and observe the data, imagery and analysis as evidence, and ‘everyone’ seems to be talking about it. Yet, we seem to have paralysed ourselves from taking immediate action to avoid its consequences.

Panellists: George Marshall, author and founder of the Climate Outreach Information Network, Marcus Coates, artist.

Chair: Professor Stephan Lewandowsky, Chair in Cognitive Psychology, Bristol University
