Let’s drink in the WeCLISH Climate Café’s Zoom room and connect over an insightful conversation with this month’s Café Guest, Dr M Reza Najafi.

Dr Najafi will discuss how climate change is driving an increase in extreme weather events like floods, droughts, and heatwaves.

Exploring the underlying mechanisms, he will share his insights into the impacts on our communities and ecosystems, and strategies for building resilience in the face of a changing climate.

You’ll also have a unique opportunity to learn about the inside stories of his research journey.

So, mark your calendar and join us at the café to listen, ponder, and share your thoughts!
