Cambridge Carbon Footprint is taking part in this year’s Cambridge Climate and Sustainability Forum. This one day annual forum is organised by a group of Cambridge University students and run in partnership with the Cambridge Hub.
Forum 2018 will celebrate the progress of the environmental movement over the last 55 years, with the theme ‘Living on the Edge’. It aims to engage the audience on how we can manage climate risks and tackle the social, economic and environmental challenges we face as a species.
There’s an exciting line-up of speakers from around the world, workshops from local organisations actively engaging in sustainability, expert panels and debates on climate denial, plastic waste, community resilience and the outcomes of the COP23 talks. Key speakers include Professor David Vaughan OBE, Director of Science at the British Antarctic Survey, who will be giving the opening keynote address and Craig Bennett, CEO for Friends of the Earth EWNI. Sail Britain, an organisation working with with artists, scientists, storytellers, communities and research organisations to increase ocean literacy through sailing and cultural exchange will also be there.
A full vegetarian/vegan buffet lunch from a local caterer will be provided, and the event will be followed by drinks at the venue bar!
