& Climate Change Conference

The First International Conference on Petrochemicals and Climate Change: Technology, Policy and Societal Change in a time of Planetary Crises

01 Jul 2024 - 03 Jul 2024
Hosted by the University of Cambridge

Conference Aims

This conference will be a meeting place for academics and staff from other research focused organisations who take an interest in the central role that the petrochemical and plastics industries play in contributing to the planetary crises of climate change, global pollution and biodiversity loss. We see that this conference could provide a great opportunity for learning across fields of research that are rarely connected, enabling discussion and debate amongst people from a wide range of disciplines.
