The next workshop will continue to look at the weather data being collected from the weather station at the University of Loughborough and how we can turn this data into descriptions of the weather and predictions for what is happening in the near future and in a future where they might be a 2 degrees or even 4 degrees temperature rise.
We will look at what has been suggested in the IPCC report on climate change in terms of the impact of climate change and our lives, environment and the weather. The workshop will involve writing and/or video and audio recording.
