Get involved with our campaign to cut energy wastage across Queen Mary campuses
Climate change is one of the major environmental, social, and economic challenges that we currently face. Greenhouse gases (GHGs) emitted from human actions are the main causes of climate change.
The increased frequency of the occurrences of extreme weather conditions, disruptions from forest fires, drought, flooding, and conflicts over natural resources disproportionately affect the poor and most vulnerable including women and children.
The video below highlights some of the impacts and consequences of climate change.
