Outreach and funding
The Climate Histories Group has received funding to continue its interdisciplinary work on environmental understandings and history and to take it beyond academia to work with children, artists, local organizations and policymakers.
Funding has been received from:
• University of Cambridge HEIF 5 award
• ESRC Impact Acceleration Activity grant through the University of Cambridge to support and extend outreach work
• Eco-Himal to support international links with schools
The group organised a series of workdays in schools in order to learn from and inspire children in their explorations of their own environments. Activities have included: water vole surveys, work with artists, visits to chalk pits, international links with schools in Italy and Nepal.
