Can interdisciplinary thinking save our planet?
A holistic approach to tackling climate change - panel, Q&A and drinks reception hosted by Palgrave Macmillan as part of Academic Book Week.
Palgrave Macmillan and Springer Nature are proud to celebrate Academic Book Week (9-13 March), the theme of which this year is ‘Academic Books and the Environment’. We’re hosting a panel event, Q&A and drinks reception at our London campus on the evening of Thursday 12th March as part of the week’s celebrations. Doors open at 5:30 for a 6 pm start. The event is free to attend. The diverse range of interdisciplinary research we publish highlights the necessity of a holistic approach to help us tackle some of the world’s most pressing issues. Through Palgrave Macmillan’s unique lens encompassing the humanities, social sciences, and business, this event will look at the broader social aspects of environment and sustainability and explore the perhaps lesser-known pathways that will ensure a better life for future generations. The panel will feature several Palgrave Macmillan authors whose research relates to climate change and environmental impact - across policy, business, psychology, energy, and beyond. The event will last one hour plus a Q&A, followed by a drinks reception. Panellists: Audley Genus - Professor of Innovation and Technology Management at Kingston University and contributor to Advancing Energy Policy and Energy Demand Challenges in Europe Caroline Hickman - Teaching Fellow in Social Work and Psychotherapy, University of Bath and contributor to Climate Psychology Wesley Spindler - Business & Sustainability Strategist within Accenture Strategy and co-author of The Circular Economy Handbook Moderator: Laura Hood, Politics Editor at The Conversation Palgrave Macmillan and its parent company Springer Nature are passionate about supporting sustainable development globally. Our Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Programme aims to connect the researchers who are tackling the world’s toughest challenges with the practitioners in policy and business who desperately need those insights to achieve their goals in improving the world, by making our publishing activities more visible to our key communities through a variety of channels.
