Environment work with schools

A nature trail in Strumpshaw



During 2013–2014 the group worked with four local schools to deliver activities relating to the environment from ideas and understandings to activities, interactions and international linking. Each school's work is represented in the posters below and the children presented their work at a workshop in Cambridge on 3rd October 2014 as part of the new AHRC Pathways Project.

Cambridge Interdisciplinary Research on the Environment is a group that was initiated following a successful AHRC Network grant within Social Anthropology which created an interdisciplingary netwook on Climate Histories. Following the success of this network an interdisciplinary seminar series was funded by CRASSH from 2011–2016 to continue work on this theme. 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 and continues as an occasional series hosted at the Mongolia & Inner Asia Studies Unit.

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.
