Policy Workshop 2016

Policy Workshop 2016

A workshop was held with policymakers and other stakeholders to explore project findings through a series of short presentations each followed by discussion.

Public Attitudes:
• Are people disconnected from their environment?
Richard Irvine (Division of Social Anthropology)

• Education: Powerful knowledge about climate change from the bottom up
Elsa Lee (Faculty of Education)

• International experience: Thinking comparatively about creative flexibility in the face of unexpected changes
Barbara Bodenhorn (Division of Social Anthropology)

• Video presentation
Broad Perspectives on Environmental Education
Jonathan Woolley (Division of Social Anthropology & Pembroke College)

This video was shown at the Policy Workshop held at Pembroke College Cambridge, co-funded by Pembroke College and the AHRC via the Pathways Project. It features some of the individuals involved with the work of our PhD scholar, Jonathan Woolley, in his ethnographic study of the Norfolk Broads. 


Cambridge Interdisciplinary Research on the Environment is a group that was initiated through a seminar series funded by CRASSH in 2011. This series was co-convened by the Departments of Social Anthropology, Geography, and the Engineering Department's Centre for Sustainable Development.

The series brought together people from a range of academic and non-academic backgrounds including the sciences, arts, humanities, and social sciences, and those working within policy, industry, activism, education, and media. The series has run each year since culminating in the Paris 2015: Climate Histories Seminar Series. 

The connections and networks made through the discussions in this series formed the backdrop against which some funding bids were developed and the projects that resulted are also featured on this site.
