Christ's College Climate Seminars

The Christ's College Climate Seminar Series was established in 2014 thanks to a donation from Charles Kennel, Honarary Fellow of Christ's College, Cambridge. Each series of seminars considers aspects of climate-related research and developments that are likely to have significant implications for climate policy.
