We had short talks by Siobhan Davies, a choreographer who'd been up to the Arctic as part of Cape Farewell, and Malcolm McCullough who works at the Engineering Department at Oxford, researching technological solutions to climate change.
After that we were allowed to just meet people and network in the bar area, and I met some really interesting people, whom I would never normally get to meet. For example, I got chatting to Anne Brodie, an artist who got to spend 3 months living and working at the British Antarctic Survey base in Antarctica. She's now working on an art project using bioluminescent bacteria, and is also having a chunk of ice shipped over from Antarctica to sculpt.
What I really appreciated about the Tipping Point event was how they set it up so that you felt you could approach anyone and just chat with them. It was really invigorating.
I also spoke to a bunch of people about engaging school children with the climate change problem, and came away with some useful contacts and some useful ideas about how to approach the problem, which I'm planning to feed into our Operation Climate Control game.
