The conference on the theme of “Climate Dilemmas: ideals versus realities” encourages participants to reflect on the ideals coming out of research compared to the demands and challenges posed by the realities of contemporary society. Climate researchers produce work that shows what should be done ideally, but there is often a clash between what should be done and what can be done realistically. There are frequently practical and political barriers that prevent the ideals from being reached. The conference will focus on interdisciplinary approaches to climate change research and will consider current dilemmas.

PhD students and early career researchers in all disciplines of climate change research are invited to attend the 2016 Tyndall PhD conference. The conference provides an opportunity to meet other PhD students and researchers in a friendly and stimulating environment, create new academic networks and gain insights from a variety of different perspectives.
