Hot Poet: Elvis McGonagall
Matched with: Met Office
Poem Focus: Climate Research
The Poem's context is around the reporting of the Met Office which is the national meteorological service for the UK. They provide critical weather services and world-leading climate science, helping you make better decisions to stay safe and thrive. The Met Office Hadley Centre is one of the UK’s foremost climate change research centers and, since its foundation in 1990, has developed a world-leading capability for developing and applying climate science to address societal needs. This has been achieved through pioneering research with global partners and end-users to find the most effective approach to managing climate risk. Many Met Office scientists are interested in innovative ways to communicate about climate through the arts, and the Met Office was a key partner in the Climate Stories project, which helped build a community of artists and scientists with a proven track record of creative public engagement and outreach capabilities.
