GLOW Meet – Weather and Climate Change

weather and climate change

Holidaying in Ibiza or even backpacking across Europe was not an option last summer for four inspirational undergraduate students from all across Scotland, who spurned the ordinary and instead single-handedly organised an extraordinary trip to the Arctic.

The main purpose of the trip was to study how climate change is affecting the landscape and the people of the Arctic.

Team leader, Cameron MacKay, was motivated to go on the trip due to his strong interest in climate change. To record the effects of climate change they used camera drones, art and social research. They responded to what they saw through creating music and art work.

To hear more from Cameron and the rest of his team tune in to our Glow meet on Wednesday 27th May, 10.45 – 11.45. They will be showing footage of the trip and answering your questions.
