Event summary: ClimateKeys Cambridge, hosted by Trinity College Music Society, will feature a performance by unaccompanied vocalists The Cantabrigians, a talk by Emily Shuckburgh and a conversation with the audience. Response to climate change will be discussed.

“The premise is for audience members to be able to talk about climate change without it being a Q&A session with a speaker. Music is played, ideas are proposed, and then the audience is actively encouraged to participate in a conversation.” (Julia Marques, Caba)

The Cantabrigians is a group of professional female singers based in Cambridge, founded and directed by soprano Paula Downes. Many of the singers are former members of the National Youth Choir of Great Britain and ex Cambridge Choral Scholars and have since performed with groups including The Sixteen, Philharmonia Voices, the BBC Daily Service Singers, I Fagiolini, the Tallis Scholars and The Hanover Band. Formed in 2016, they have performed in the Chapels of Christ’s, Selwyn, Churchill, Jesus and Trinity Colleges, and for the Christmas Big Switch On to huge Crowds. They have also performed twice for the Brandenburg Choral Festival of London and for Encore Concerts. They always programme contemporary composers including Andrew Downes, Jonathan Dove, David Bednall, Hilary Tann and Sarah Macdonald.

Dr Emily Shuckburgh is a climate scientist based at the British Antarctic Survey. There she leads the Open Oceans research group, which is focused on understanding the role of the polar oceans in the global climate system. Her personal research concerns investigating the dynamics of the atmosphere, oceans and climate using theoretical approaches, observational studies and numerical modelling. She holds a number of positions at the University of Cambridge. She is a fellow of Darwin College, a member of the Faculty of Mathematics, and an associate of the Cambridge Centre for Climate Change Mitigation Research. In addition she is a member of Faculty for many programmes of the Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership, which is dedicated to working with leaders from business, government and civil society on the critical global challenges of the 21st century such as climate change, water scarcity and food security. She completed her undergraduate studies in mathematics at the University of Oxford and a PhD in applied mathematics at the University of Cambridge. She then conducted post-doctoral studies in atmosphere and ocean dynamics at Ecole Normal Superieure in Paris and at MIT. She is a fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society, Chair of their Climate Science Communications Group and a former Chair of their Scientific Publications Committee. She acts as an advisor to the UK Government on behalf of the Natural Environment Research Council.
