Event location: 
New Museums Site, 14 Pembroke Street Cambridge CB2 3QY

The Cambridge Climate and Sustainability Forum aims to bring university staff and students and members of the public together to discuss and learn about ‘Global Perspectives’ on sustainability. Global environmental issues can only be tackled through global collaboration. By working together, we can respond to these issues in creative and innovative ways. The event is kindly supported by Cambridge Hub and Cambridge Zero.


There will be a diverse range of field leaders at the event, speaking on their lived experience working within the green sector, and the conference aims to cover a diverse range of ways to address the current environmental crisis. We have two amazing keynote speakers, as well as inspiring panellists who will take part in our two panel discussions on ‘Sustainable Development for All’ and ‘Business and Innovation’. There will also be six workshops where you can engage with the themes of decolonisation, conservation, education, technology, zero waste and business. The event will also include a green fair where you can network with speakers and local sustainability organisations.


Lunch from Aromi and refreshments will be provided. These are included in the ticket price.
