Magdalene Goes Zero Carbon – Social! 03/11/2015

Tuesday (November 3rd) 6:30pm – Magdalene bar

Cambridge Zero Carbon is teaming up with Magdalene Green & Ethical (who saw that one coming) for a social in Magdalene bar. There will be FREE drinks, the only condition being that you humour us a little about the environment. A chance for Zero Carbonites to get to know each other a bit better, and Magdaleneites to get involved, or simply relax!

Zero Carbon Campaign Meeting! 31/10/2015

Tomorrow (Saturday 31st October) 13:30pm, Magdalene Bar

Zero Carbon’s third (& most important!) campaign meeting this term. Our campaign launch is imminent so there are lots of things that need to be done urgently to ensure it’s a slick operation. The press is starting to roll out articles calling Cambridge to divest from fossil fuels. It is now #timetoact to make Cambridge a #fossilfree university. New-comers are most definitely welcome so don’t worry if you haven’t been able to make the meetings so far!

 

CANCELLED: Food for thought talk on 6 Mar, 2014

I’m sorry that the talk has to be cancelled.

Talk: Climate Change Research

Speaker: Dr Andrew Friend, Department of Geography

Abstract: Andrew Friend from Department of Geography develops computational models of the effects of global change on terrestrial ecosystems and atmosphere. His current work is particularly concerned with the representation of physiological differences between plant types and species, the representation of competition, and the global-scaledynamics of biogeochemistry-climate interactions. Dr Friend leads the research which is part of the ‘Inter-Sectoral Impact Model Intercomparison Project’ (ISI-MIP) – a unique community-driven effort to bring research on climate change impacts to a new level.

Dr Friend will speak about his work within ISI -MIP project, what implications the recent findings have on the future of climate studies and the potential for this research feeding into climate policy.

Come along for this very special lunchtime talk to find out about the frontiers in climate research! Feel free to bring your own lunch, but light refreshments will be also provided.
