5th May 2020
Special Interest Day on Climate Change and Future Sustainability.
Climate Change has become a major news item affecting all age groups. Issues in 2019 included Extinction Rebellion; Greta Thunberg shouting at the UN; commitments to make the UK carbon neutral by specific dates in the recent election campaigns of the major parties; Sir David Attenborough’s documentary; ‘7 worlds one planet’ and the recently announced Earthshot Prize.
So what are the facts, what are the future options, how will we cope and adapt on a personal level to what could be radical changes to the way we live in the future?
U3A in Kennet on behalf of the Bath and Wiltshire Network of U3As has organised a Special Interest Day ‘Climate Change and Future Sustainability’ on May the 5th at Marlborough College. Four talks by experts in the various fields will address specific aspects touched on above. Attached in both WORD and PDF formats is the programme for the day; the outline of each talk and some biographical details of the speakers; joining arrangements and a registration form to be completed and returned along with the fee if you wish to attend. Attendance is for U3A members only – so if you have friends that would like to attend please encourage them to join the U3A!
Marlborough College is very generously subsidising the Special Interest Day which has made it possible to keep the cost as low as possible and U3A in Kennet is extremely grateful for positive engagement from the College. College students will also attend the talks.
