The ECRN has the privilege of connecting many renowned researchers across a wide variety of disciplines. All of them are united by a commitment to educate and innovate in the field of energy and climate research. In our new podcast series, we'll be speaking to our members about their work. Our aim is to make their complex but vital work accessible to a general audience.

In our first episode, Dr Colm Kearns speaks to Professor Pat Brereton of DCU's School of Communications about his research on the intersection between cinema and environmentalism. Professor Brereton discusses why he thinks cinema is important to raising eco-consciousness, where would-be environmental films can miss the mark in their messaging, and what he thinks the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic means for the climate crisis.
