Thinking at Twilight, Wednesday 17 July 2019

Enjoy drinks & canapes with fellow alum and hear guest speaker Dr André Cabrera Serrenho, Senior Research Associate, University of Cambridge's Department of Engineering, on "How frugal we need to become to mitigate climate change?"

Date: Wednesday 17 July

Time: 6.30 - 8.00pm 

Venue: University, Union & Schools Club, 25 Bent Street, Sydney

Dress: jacket and tie for men and equivalent for women

Climate change mitigation requires urgent action across all human activities. Yet change has been slow and current climate targets will hardly be met. Current strategies have identified technological options to reduce emissions in the power sector and some options to reduce our demand for energy and materials. However, the scale of the challenge may require the reduction of our demand for energy and material services. Opportunities for travelling less or living in smaller homes have rarely been explored but the link between service demand reduction and wellbeing could unlock new opportunities for meaningful emissions savings with far-reaching social and economic implications.

 



AGM & Thinking at Twilight, Thursday 13 June 2019

Enjoy drinks & canapes with fellow alum and hear guest speaker, Tess Langfield (Christ's College), visiting Cambridge scholar talk on her work on public health and drinking behaviour


Date: Thursday 13 June
Time: 6.00 - 8.00pm (AGM at 6pm)
Venue: University, Union & Schools Club, 25 Bent Street, Sydney

Dress: jacket and tie for men and equivalent for women

Tess Langfield, a Cambridge scholar who is visiting Sydney next week, will talk about her current research topic of public health and drinking behaviour. Tess is interested in behaviour change. She works to understand some of the lower-level mechanisms driving health behaviours, as well as, why certain behaviour change approaches may be more effective than others. Ultimately she is interested in understanding the nature of human behaviour, including the factors (physical and social environments, motivations, underlying processes) that shape it.
