Award-winning poets and spoken word artists from around the world have been matched with researchers from Imperial College London and beyond studying the causes, effects of, and solutions to climate change. In a mixture of exciting live performances and subtitled recordings, they’ll present poetry in a range of languages, with time for questions and answers from the live performers afterwards. The result will be a cross-cultural feast of poetry and science, investigating the danger our natural and human landscapes are facing across the globe and what we can do about it.
