Climate action in theory and practice | Candice Howarth, Matt Lane and Amanda Slevin

In episode five Kate and John talk to three members of the PCAN family about their new book ‘Addressing the Climate Crisis: Local action in theory and practice’.

The book is co-edited by Candice Howarth from Grantham Institute at the London School of Economics, Matthew Lane from the University of Edinburgh, and Amanda Slevin from Queens’ University Belfast.

Hear the story and events that inspired the book, and how a team of three academics from different corners of the UK managed to coordinate 35 authors to contribute to this endeavour.

The book offers hope, inspiration and analyses for multi-level climate action, demonstrating how the energy and dynamism of local scales are a powerful resource in turning the tide on climate change.

Join co-hosts Professor John Barry, from Queen’s University Belfast, and Kate Lock, from the University of Leeds, as they delve into this new, open access publication.
