Professor Charles Kennel is returning to Cambridge to host a series of seminars, ‘Bending the Curve on Climate’ in collaboration with the Centre for Science and Policy and Christ’s College, Cambridge.

In the wake of Paris 2015, governments, universities and businesses are re-examining their climate strategies, with a view to limiting emissions to well below the 2 degree warming scenario.

Following on from the success of the 2014 and 2015 seminar series convened by Professor Charles Kennel and the Centre for Science and Policy, this series of seminars aims to explore practical solutions to meeting the commitments made at Paris.

4 February:

This panel discussion will examine action and responsibility on climate change in the wake of Paris 2015.

Panellists include Professor Kennel, Dr Richard Fraser (Mongolia and Inner Asia Studies Unit, Universtiy of Cambridge), Dr Emily Shuckburgh (British Antarctic Survey) and Dr Joanna Depledge (Department of Politics and International Studies, University of Cambridge).
