In order to produce scientifically-sound and socially-just solutions, our responses to global climate change must encompass multi-disciplinary evidence from natural science, social science, arts, humanities, and traditional and local knowledge. With so many ways of knowing the world at play, young scientists and civilians are at the forefront of synthesising and communicating these wide-ranging forms of evidence. This event brings together young speakers from diverse backgrounds to inspire us with discussion on how we can share and work with evidence in rural climate change responses.
