Taking the Temperature: Climate Fragility vs Climate Unity

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the capacity of the Old Library is strictly limited to 55 people. Once capacity is reached, we will have to refuse entry to additional participants. To avoid this risk, make sure to arrive early. As per college regulations, you will also be required to wear a mask during the lecture and Q&A session, and to remove it only when you are speaking. We further suggest bringing warm clothes, as some windows will be left open to ventilate the room. Main access to the Old Library is via a steep staircase. Arrangements can be made for those with limited mobility to use a stairlift and a Fellow’s room to gain access. Please let us know at least one day in advance if you require this type of assistance.
