The Science Council is inviting IBMS members to take part in its new campaign showcasing the work of scientists in relation to climate change.

In the run-up to COP26, held for the first time in the UK this November, the Science Council are looking to showcase the outstanding contribution of scientists and science technicians working on the latest research to achieve a greener future. 

Securing global net-zero by mid-century and limiting global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees requires huge collaboration and connected thinking.

From implementing more sustainable practices in the laboratory to conducting research into disease spread and health effects of climate change, biomedical scientists and laboratory staff have an important role to play in the fight against climate change.
