Learning Pathways through Changing Places:
Exploring the Global
Thursday 2nd October, 3pm to 6pm; Old Library, Pembroke College
Linking communities from the wetlands of the Norfolk Broads and the Cambridgeshire Fens with Alaska, Mexico and Mongolia
This symposium is part of the launch event of the AHRC project entitled ‘Pathways to Understanding the Changing Climate: Time and place in cultural learning about the environment’. This four part event brings together researchers and practitioners from around the globe to talk about alternative approaches to learning in times of environmental change. Each presentation will be locally situated and embedded in place (in Mongolia, Alaska, Mexico and Cambridgeshire), but will illustrate how environmental issues that have local significance can be relevant to and reflected in distant places. Such issues benefit from and can foster intercultural, global interchange which this event will provide a forum for.
