Pic As part of Curious Climate Tasmania, ABC Radio invited Tasmanians to send in the climate change questions they most wanted to know more about. We’ve gathered a team of scientists and researchers from a wide range of organisations across Tasmania who will now provide answers at live events to the most popular questions you asked from each region - East Coast, West Coast, Northern and Southern Tasmania.

Join ABC Northern Tasmania's Drive presenter Piia Wirsu at this interactive live event with some of Tasmania's top scientists.

This event in Queenstown is part of a series of free events we are running for National Science Week 2019. At the event we will reveal the answers to your most popular questions from West Coast Tasmania, and host a Q&A panel with the scientist team.

This is a free event, however registration is recommended to guarantee entry, as available seats are subject to venue capacity.

Curious Climate Tasmania aims to develop public-powered scientific engagement, bridging the gap between experts and audiences with credible, relevant information about climate change. There are many science communication projects providing interesting and reliable information, but the difference with Curious Climate is we have asked YOU what it is you’d like to know.

Videos of the answers will also be available through our website shortly after Science Week. For more info about the project and our other events, please visit curiousclimate.org.au.

Curious Climate Tasmania is a collaborative project between the Centre for Marine Socioecology (CMS), the Institute of Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS), the University of Tasmania (UTAS), ABC Radio, the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture (TIA) and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).
