‘Thinking Like a Climate’ Manchester book launch with Hannah Knox

In this event Jonathan Atkinson of Carbon Co-op will be in conversation with anthropologist, Hannah Knox about her fascinating new book, Thinking Like A Climate, which draws on ethnographic research among Manchester’s policy makers, politicians, activists, academics to explores the city’s strategies for understanding and responding to the challenge of climate change.

Based on Hannah’s time embedded at Manchester City Council and here at Carbon Co-op, Hannah argues that the ‘multi-dimensional’ problem that is climate change challenges the limits of administrative and bureaucratic processes.

The book and the event is a must for anyone involved in climate action in Manchester or other municipal context’s in the UK – including council officers, elected officials, activists and academics.

The event will include a short reading from Hannah, a conversation between Jonathan and Hannah and Q&A from attendees. The event is free of charge.
