Geography Society climate change lecture series: President Mohamed Nasheed

Tuesday 24 January 2017

The QMUL Geography Society (QMGS) would like to announce their inaugural academic series lecture, taking place on Wednesday 15 February, 3–6pm.

Arguably the most important factor in modern human history revolves around climate change. Focusing on the need for a low carbon development strategy and the need for good governance as a central issue in climate change, QMGS introduce: former president Mohamed Nasheed, fourth president of the Maldives; and Dr Simon Carr, Senior Lecturer at QMUL.

QMGS is delighted that such a high profile VIP speaker has agreed to attend what is hoped will be the first of many exciting academic talks. Please join the society in the Skeel Lecture Theatre, People's Palace, Mile End campus. Doors open from 3pm with the talk commencing at approximately 3.30pm. The talk will be followed by a short Q&A session subject to timing. A networking reception will follow in the People's Palace foyer area.

Demand is expected to be extremely high, not just within the School of Geography but the wider university. The society endeavour to open this up to School of Geography students and Academics in the first instance, however additional university students and academics may be invited soon after.

You must be a member of the Geography Society. Please sign up if you are not already a member. Society fees will go towards the running of this and similar events.

Tickets to this event are free, but please sign up via the Eventbrite page.
