Sydney Network on Climate Change and Society

Australia has already begun to feel the impacts of a changing climate - impacts that the science indicates will only increase. Researchers at the University of Sydney are uniquely capable of addressing a wide range of issues to be faced by a climate-changing and climate-challenged society, with our interests and expertise spread across numerous environmental aspects of the natural sciences, social science, and humanities. The Sydney Network on Climate Change and Society (SNCCS) brings together a critical mass, and enables broader examination of the various structural transitions necessary for a climate-changing world. The network includes researchers from six faculties (Arts and Social Sciences, Law, Architecture Design and Planning, Science, Medicine and Business).

Professors with global reputations in their respective fields are working with early and mid-career scholars - all dedicated to building an interdisciplinary, integrated, and innovative Sydney Network on Climate Change and Society. In addition to its expertise and publication record, members of the group have strong, ongoing track records of external funding for both individual and collaborative projects. We look to continue these collaborations, to examine a range of issues to be faced by societies challenged by climate change, and to assist in the transition with which we are confronted.

Network Co-Convenor Professor Schlosberg discusses the role of the Network.
