CEC 9th annual doctoral students' symposium
On behalf of the PhD student community at CEC we are delighted to invite you to the 9th Annual Doctoral Students’ Symposium on 28 November!
Our purpose is to share our research with all CEC staff and be inspired and challenged by your questions and comments. The PhD students will all contribute to the day’s program with longer or shorter talks. We can promise a broad and exciting spectrum of talks from many corners of environmental science!
As a special treat this year, historian David Larsson Heidenblad will give a guest lecture presenting his research on the development of modern environmental and climate consciousness.
Please note that the symposium is an in-person event and it is not possible to participate remotely.
