Cities, Climate and Extreme Weather:
Policy, Economics and Public Communication

Leeds University Business School, the Cities Theme and the Centre for Decision Research are hosting an Ideas in Practice seminar on Cities, Climate and Extreme Weather. The event will be chaired by Deputy Dean Professor Cathy Cassell from Leeds University Business School.

The seminar will address topics related to policy, economics and public communications surrounding extreme weather such as heatwaves and flooding. It will be an opportunity to hear from people with expertise on cities, climate and weather from both the private and public sector as well as researchers. The seminar will span across areas of interest to all these groups and could potentially lead to new collaborative research agendas and partnerships. 
Speakers and panel members include Mariana Pexton, Chief Officer Strategy and Improvement, Leeds City Council and Phil Younge, Yorkshire Major Incident Recovery Manager, The Environment Agency together with representatives from Leeds University Business School, the university Cities Theme and The Priestley International Centre for Climate.
