Weekly seminars by the Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy, and Natural Resource Governance

Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy and Natural Resource Governance (CEENRG) continues its weekly CEENRG Seminar Series throughout the 2023-2024 academic year. Our seminars are informal and friendly talks allowing discussion of on-going work for both early career researchers and senior academics. Presenters are expected to speak for 30-45 mins to allow substantial time for discussion. Talks focus on issues in law, policy and governance of climate change, environment and energy. All are welcome!

In 2024 Lent term, our weekly seminars take place in a hybrid format: in person in the David Attenborough Building (DAB) and online in Zoom every Thursday at 3.15-4.15 pm*,** (UK time) between 18 January and 20 March 2024. We warmly invite our colleagues in Cambridge to attend the seminars in person in the DAB - no registration needed. Alternatively, if you would like to join any of the seminars online via Zoom, please register using this online form. Upon registering, you will receive an e-mail with the Zoom meeting link on the day of the respective seminar.
