Call for papers and attendance
This Michaelmas term, Cambridge Zero in collaboration with Hughes Hall Centre for Climate Engagement are running four half day symposia. The aim of these symposia is to showcase the ground-breaking research related to sustainability, climate change, and net-zero that is happening across Cambridge, to connect researchers from across different communities and disciplines, and encourage new collaborations. Attendance is free.
The list of symposia is as follows:
- 28th October – Economy & Society: achieving sustainable development using natural capital, social capital and sustainable finance.
- 8th November – Carbon Capture & Climate Repair: what, where, when, how, by whom and for whom?
- 21st November – Behavioural Change & Education: tackling misinformation and promoting institutional and individual action
- 7th December – Climate & Disease: drivers, impacts and solutions
Each symposium will be held in the Pavilion Room at Hughes Hall, Cambridge. They will run from 1pm to 5.10pm with lunch from 1pm – 1.50pm. There will also be a drinks reception from 5.10pm until 6pm.
Each symposium will feature a number of keynote presentations from senior Cambridge academics, and we are inviting submissions from Early Career Researchers (Cambridge Postdocs and PhD students) to present their research in a series of 10 minute presentations. There is also the option to give a 2 minute ‘lightning’ presentation instead of a 10 minute one. This would consist of a single slide and a (very) brief explanation of your research. This may be a suitable option for those just beginning their research project or to present ideas for future research projects.
We invite interested researchers whose work fits under the broad remit of sustainability and/ or climate change to submit abstracts via this form.
The audience is likely to predominantly internal Cambridge researchers, but we also expect some external interest.
If you would like to attend without presenting, you are also welcome. In this case, please email Daniel Robins firstname.lastname@example.org so that we know how many will be attending.
