Coffee and Climate
The Australian Museum has a firm focus on communicating about climate change in Australia. We want to talk about solutions – and there are so many!
Australian science is leading the world in climate solutions, from researching seaweed for reducing the methane cows produce to rapidly increasing the efficiency of solar panels.
Enjoy a coffee, relax in the comfort of the Members lounge and join this open and informed conversation about the good news on climate change with Dr Jenny Newell, curator of the Australian Museum Climate Solutions Centre. Come along for inspiration and camaraderie. Climate change is challenging, but you don’t have to tackle it alone.
Jenny Newell (Curator, Climate Change Projects at the Australian Museum) works on the cultural dimensions of climate change, focusing on communities in Australia and the Pacific. She aims to increase engagement in environmental stewardship through the medium of museums.
With a background in environmental history, Jenny has worked with Pacific communities and collections at the British Museum, National Museum of Australia, the American Museum of Natural History (New York) and the Australian Museum to amplify voices on climate change for broad audiences.
