Generating debate among young people around the world about how to tackle ‘the world’s most pressing issue’, is a key aim of the new Cambridge Climate Lecture Series 2017 (CCLS 2017), says co-founder and Trinity Fellow, Dr Hugh Hunt.
Award-winning artist Dr Wendy McMurdo has been appointed lead photographer of Pairings, an innovative arts project which celebrates the many and varied ways in which Trinity has inspired students, Fellows, staff and alumni. Pairings is part of the celebrations marking the 40th anniversary of women’s admission to Trinity.
Co-Presidents of Trinity’s LGBT+ society, 1TQ, Mimi Trevelyan-Davis and James Riseley, and Fellow in English, Dr Joe Moshenska, have co-curated an exhibition in the Wren Library exploring the nature of male friendship.
Trinity alumni His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales and Dr Emily Shuckburgh have co-authored a Ladybird guide to climate change, together with environmentalist Tony Juniper.
Engaging 11 to 13 year-old girls with science, stipends for graduating female PhD students, greater teacher liaison, and TED-style talks by graduate students were some of the ideas discussed by Fellows, alumni and postgraduates to encourage more women to apply to Trinity as undergraduates and to continue in academia.
