Weekly Seminars on the Most Important Questions in Climate Change and Politics
During Hilary Term 2018, we have hosted the inaugural Oxford School of Climate Change, an eight-week seminar series designed for all those who care deeply about preventing climate breakdown and finding answers to the most pressing questions in climate policy and science. Participants in the series had the unique opportunity to participate in high-quality seminar sessions with some of the most distinguished lecturers on the respective topics.
You can find out more about the contents of the individual sessions below. We have also recorded some the expert presentation given during the sessions - you can access the available videos via the overview below.
We will host a new series of the School of Climate Change in the next academic year, so if you are interested in participating in the future make sure to sign up to our newsletter to always receive the latest updates.
