A talk on climate change, Gaelic & the arts with Anndra Muncaster


Bidh an òraid seo a’ coimhead air mar a tha sinn a’ cleachdadh cànan agus cultar na Gàidhlig gus tuigsinn fhaighinn air atharrachadh na gnàth-shìde. Tha Anndra, a tha ag obair aig Ceòlas, air ceum a chrìochnachadh o choinn ghoirid ann an cruinn-eòlas aig Oilthigh Chill Rìmhinn, is rinn e an tràchdas aige air cunnartan san àm ri teachd le tuiltean ann an Uibhist, le measadh air na dòighean as fheàrr dhuinn atharrachadh gus ullachadh airson barrachd thuiltean agus bleith-thalmhainn air ar chostaichean. Bidh Anndra a’ coimhead air atharrachaidhean ann an Uibhist bho o choinn fhada chun an latha an-diugh, mar a tha a’ Ghàidhlig gar cuideachadh ann a bhith a’ tuigsinn agus a lorg fianais air na h-atharraichean seo, agus an t-slighe air adhart airson freagairtean fhaighinn mu atharrachadh na gnàth-shìde.


This talk will look at how we can use Gaelic language and culture to understand climate change. Andrew, who works at Ceòlas, recently graduated with a degree in Geography from the University of St Andrews and completed a dissertation on potential future flood-related issues in Uist as a result of rising relative sea level, and the key management issues, assessing the best ways to adapt to issues related to flooding and coastal erosion which may increase in frequency due to climate change. This talk will look at changes in Uist over time, how Gaelic language and culture can be used to further understand and evidence climate change and how future adaptation can be informed by Gaelic language and culture.

This talk will be delivered in Gàidhlig with instantaneous translation headsets available.
