Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy and Natural Resource Governance

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

The Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy, and Natural Resource Governance (C-EENRG) is hosting online Seminar series throughout the Lent term of the 2020-2021 academic year. These are informal and friendly talks allowing discussion of on-going work for PhD students, early career researchers and senior academics. Seminars take place every Thursday, 2-3 pm (UK time). The presenter is expected to speak for 30-45 mins to allow substantial time for discussion. Talks focus on issues of climate change, environment and energy. All are welcome!

The seminars this term take place online in Zoom. Please register your interest using a simple form. If you are registered, each week, on the day of the seminar, you will receive an e-mail with a Zoom link.
