Chris is part of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at the University of Manchester on linking Tyndall Manchester research with organisations, communities and industries. For over 20 years Tyndall Manchester has been working to inform and support action on the scale and urgency of tackling climate change. A recent collaboration with Massive Attack has brought this research into the conversation on reducing the impact of live music on the climate.
Talk: ‘Super-low carbon live music?’
Without a rapid shift away from fossil fuel use in its current form the world will be a different and more dangerous place. Having more live music with far fewer greenhouse gas emissions from the fossil fuels that drive climate change is a huge challenge – particularly for large venues, more established acts and festivals. Some ideas on this have come from a recent collaboration between Massive and the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research into how live music can re-assemble in a super-low carbon form.
