Location: The William Gates Building, 15 JJ Thomson Ave, Cambridge, CB3 0FD

Causal methods provide an exciting set of tools to determine and quantify the causal effects of interventions on systems of interest. The goal of this workshop is to bring together causal researchers and environmental data scientists to discuss the latest developments in causal methods and their application to pressing environmental and climatic problems. The conference will be held in-person, at the William Gates Building in Cambridge, UK on the 6th and 7th of December 2022.

At this exciting stage for causal methods in environmental science, the 1st Causal Methods in Environmental Science workshop will allow early career researchers, academics and industry researchers alike to gain a sense of community and learn about the latest developments in the field. We aim to give a broad yet comprehensive overview of both causal methods and areas of environmental science that may benefit from the application of causal methods, and provide a meeting point for the community.
