Held between January 18 - February 8, the 2018 Christ’s College Climate Seminars will precede the Cambridge Climate Lecture Series.
The Centre for Science and Policy is working with Professor Charles Kennel, Director emeritus at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California San Diego, to deliver the 2018 series of climate change seminars hosted by Christ’s College.
The 2018 Christ’s College Climate Seminars will address three questions: In what ways are climates changing? What meanings are ascribed to these changes? And what is the scope for future interventions? In this four-part series we will explore these questions from scientific, cultural and policy perspectives. The aim is to shed light on different meanings of climate change, to engage the imagination and to explore the range of cultural and political responses to climate change.
