The climate that has given rise to civilisation as we know it is changing, the climate of the future will be very different from that of the past. This has huge implications for how we grow food, where we live, how we move around, how we communicate, the way we build infrastructure, and indeed for the ecosystems on which we and the rest of life on earth depend. So this show asks what will This New Climate look like? And how are we to prepare for it? One thing we do know is that climate change is already underway and that the past is therefore no longer a good guide to the future. Humanity is taking a step into the unknown.

In the first episode of This New Climate, host Will Bugler introduces EIT Climate-KIC and explores how they are stimulating innovation in the face of a challenge as great as climate change. The episode unpicks how EIT Climate-KIC is working to foster change at the systems level, in an effort to bring about transformative change. Listen to this episode and learn why climate instability demands new ways of thinking about innovation, and how EIT Climate-KIC is trying to support scalable solutions to the most pressing climate challenges.

    S1.E4: The blue green dream

    In the fourth episode of This New Climate, host Will Bugler takes a look at how cities can better prepare for climate change. Cities are concentrated centres of climate risk with large populations, high levels of economic activity and expensive cost of properties. But they are also home to over half the world’s population. This episode explores how the development of nature-based solutions can make cities better able to cope with climate impacts like extreme heat and flooding. Episode guests: NHS Nurse Claire Herne, Cedo Maksimovic from Imperial College London, Tim Van Hattum from Wageningen University, Teodoro Georgiadis from IBIMET, Frans Van De Ven from Deltares, and Anjali Jaiswal from NRDC India.

    S1.E3: OASIS and the democratisation of climate data

    In the third episode of This New Climate, host Will Bugler explores how the OASIS group of companies are seeking to transform our ability to understand climate risk through a commitment to open source data. Climate data and information is at the very heart of efforts for insurance companies to price risk and respond to extreme events like hurricanes and droughts. Steve Bowen, Director of the Catastrophe Insight team at insurance giant Aon, explains why data was central to Aon’s response to hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria helping us understand why OASIS’s mission is an important puzzle piece to managing the global climate crisis. Episode guests: Steve Bowen from Aon, Dickie Whitaker and Tracy Irvine from OASIS. This New Climate is an Acclimatise production. OASIS is an EIT Climate-KIC supported innovation initiative.

    S1.E2: Running dry – dealing with water scarcity

    In the second episode of This New Climate, host Will Bugler explores why it is so difficult to manage water resources and presents Water2Invest – a new tool that helps decision makers make smarter choices about managing water supply and demand. The world’s population has tripled over the last 100 years, but according to the UN, water demand has been growing at more than twice that rate making water scarcity one of the defining challenges of our time. And climate change will only compound the problem. Water2Invest, aims to help decision makers to take the right choices when investing in solutions to tackle water scarcity, potentially providing a powerful new tool to help tackle this crisis. Episode guests: Gisela Kaiser from the City of Cape Town, Mark Bierkens from Utrecht University, and Daniel Zimmer from EIT Climate-KIC. This New Climate is an Acclimatise production. Water2Invest is an EIT Climate-KIC supported innovation initiative.
