Reading the IPCC- Collaborative Public Reading

Call For Readers

Reading the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report / A Collaborative Public Reading / May 14-16, 2009 / 11AM-7PM every day / Manchester

Organised by Amy Balkin

While the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports are revealing documents about the current science and geopolitics of climate change, their length makes them unlikely to be read beyond specific interested readerships. This project attempts to make these documents more public through a participatory reading. Volunteers will take part in a structured public reading of the most recent section of the 2007 Fourth Assessment Report, the 800-page Working Group III Report: Mitigation.


The project is currently seeking volunteer readers. You can sign up for one or more 20-minute reading slots at (please arrive 5-10 minutes early).

It’s easy to sign up, or to take your name off the list if you can’t make it.


The reading will take place over three days in Manchester during Futuresonic 2009 from 11am to 7pm, May 14-16, 2009.

Where is it?

The location is still TBD. Please check the website for the final location.
