On 30 March 2023, University of Cambridge hosted a public panel discussion 'Climate Change: From Despair to Action' as part of Cambridge Festival. CEENRG Director, Professor Laura Diaz Anadon was one of the speakers on the panel that explored how our political structures have to change to adapt to the rapid onset of climate change, how can we better confront climate misinformation around the world, what role can technology play and how can we educate young people for the challenges to come.

The panel was hosted by Professor Emily Shuckburgh, Director of Cambridge Zero, the University of Cambridge's major climate change initiative. Other speakers included Dr Peter Sutoris, Assistant Professor in Education at the University of York and the author of the 2022 book Educating for the Anthropocene; Samira Patel from Scott Polar Research Institute who previously worked with the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA); and Dr Ramit Debnath, the inaugural Cambridge Zero Fellow at the University of Cambridge, a visiting faculty associate in Computational Social Science at Caltech, and a sustainability fellow at Churchill College, University of Cambridge.
