UNC and King’s College London Climate Change Workshop

Monday & Tues April 16/17: Inter-institutional climate change workshop between Geography Departments at UNC and King’s College London. 


Monday, April 16 at 1pm in Carolina Hall 321 we will be hosting a networking event to try and bring together students and faculty from various departments across campus who work on climate change. At 3:30pm in the Toy Lounge of Dey Hall, we’ve invited several faculty from UNC, Duke, and NCSU who work on climate change from diverse perspectives to discuss their work and take questions at a colloquium. We’ll have a happy hour at Tru afterwards.


On Tuesday, April 17 at 11:30am in the Pleasants Room of the Wilson Library, two graduate students from King’s College, Lecturer George Adamson, and a student from the Curriculum for the Environment and Ecology at UNC will be giving short presentations about their work on climate change.
