Careers to Solve the Climate Crisis
What are the critical careers for achieving net zero?
And how can sustainability be incorporated into all jobs?
We explore these questions and more in our Careers to Solve the Climate Crisis series.
Cambridge Zero takes centre stage at Climate Week NYC
Cambridge Zero Director Professor Emily Shuckburgh will take centre stage at the world's biggest climate event of its kind in New York, where she will talk to global leaders of government, business and philanthropy about Cambridge’s efforts to tackle climate change.
The University of Cambridge takes part in DARe, the new Research Hub for Decarbonised Adaptable and Resilient Transport Infrastructures
DARe, the new Research Hub for Decarbonised Adaptable and Resilient Transport Infrastructures has received £10 million in funding from the Department for Transport and UK Research and Innovation (UKRI). Led by Newcastle University, the Research Hub includes partner institutions such as the universities of Cambridge, Glasgow, and Heriot-Watt.

Localized impacts and economic implications from high temperature disruption days under climate change
Research paper examining the change in frequency of exceeding a daily mean temperature threshold on 5- to 20-year time horizons, in collaboration with Cambridge Centre for Risk Studies and the British Antarctic Survey.
Cambridge Zero Fellow Dr Ramit Debnath captures global attention with new research
Deadly heatwaves fuelled by climate change in 2022 made almost 90 percent of Indians more vulnerable to public health issues, food shortages and increased risks of death, a new study from researchers at the University of Cambridge - led by Cambridge Zero Fellow Dr Ramit Debnath - reported in the PLOS Climate journal.
Conspiracy Theories and Geoengineering: A data-driven look at how online climate misinformation works
Dr Ramit Debnath, Cambridge Zero Fellow, led an interdisciplinary team of political scientists, engineers, and justice theorists to investigate how online conspiracy theories are having an impact on the funding for research into new climate technologies like solar geoengineering, which could help lessen the effects of climate change.

New Research: COP must reverse rising pessimism over building sector decarbonisation
The building sector is one of the most important and challenging to decarbonise because it involves a complex overlap of people, places and practices that creates a barrier to designing just emission reduction policies. In a new study led by Cambridge Zero Fellow Ramit Debnath, researchers found that social media engagement with climate policy events is vital to reducing building emissions and ensuring environmental justice.
"There is still hope if we all - every single one of us - take our share of responsibility for the future of life on Earth. And that is why Cambridge Zero is so important."
