We know climate change has devastating effects on the environment, but what does it have in store for our economies? Global Futures, a first-of-its kind analytical tool, compares global economic models and high-resolution land-use and ecosystem services models to answer that very question. Join us for a lively conversation with two of the tool’s creators to explore the importance of global modelling, the significance of an economy-environment connection, and the threats climate change poses to every interdependent aspect of human life.
