'Creating a Climate Prediction Market'
Dr David Stainforth and Dr Mark Roulston will be speakers at this Winton Capital event at The Royal Society, 30 January 2017, starting at 5.30pm. 
The lecture will describe the issues discussed at an earlier workshop which explored the idea of establishing a non-commercial Climate Prediction Market where participants can bet on the value climate variables up to several decades in the future. It will outline a blueprint for the creation of a climate prediction market in the UK. Please contact David Stainforth if you are interested in attending.

'Coping with deep uncertainty: jellyfish, super-storms and nuclear stewardship'
Professor Leonard Smith will be giving a lecture, chaired by Professor Julia Black, as part of LSE Works 15 March 2017, 6.30-8.00pm, Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House, LSE.
