Hicks Room of the University Centre

The University is in the process of setting up a new initiative to substantially enhance its activities in education, research and knowledge exchange related to delivering a global carbon neutral future: the Carbon Neutral Futures Initiative. It is recognised that various institutions of the University are active in relevant research including from scientific, economic, technological and policy perspectives, and in engagement with business, finance, industry, NGOs and policymakers. The initiative aims to build on these successful activities to create a more integrated offering with even greater global impact.

Dr Emily Shuckburgh,Director of the Carbon Neutral Futures Initiative, intends to hold a series of town hall meetings to provide members of the University with the opportunity to shape the direction of the Initiative at an early stage so as to optimise its effectiveness. The first of these meetings will be held on 10 July, 2-4pm in the Hicks Room of the University Centre  with a second event planned for September. The meetings will consist of a brief overview of the current thinking concerning the structure of the Initiative and its initial focus followed by facilitated discussions. All members of the University who are involved in relevant research are welcome to participate.

Please register for the July meeting by emailing Gemma Cage or, Juliette Sharras by Thursday, 4th July


Please note – attendance is limited by the size of the venue so please register early.
