Lauren Rickards (pictured) is the co-leader of the Climate Change Transformations research program for the Centre of Urban Research at RMIT University and the co-director of the Climate Change Exchange, aimed at facilitating learning between researchers and practitioners.
She has worked with the Birchip Cropping Group, where she was once the "Thinker in Residence", is presently working with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and has done, and is doing, detailed work on resilience and scenario planning.
Contact, well, at least virtual contact, was made in the first instance with Lauren via a Farmers for Climate Action webinar.
Lauren, along with a compatriot from Sydney's University of Technology, Tamson Pietsch, wrote an article for The Conversation headed: "Climate change is the most important issue for universities in the 21st Century"
