Imagine If ?
The undetermined future of Earth
2017 CCSF
CCSF Logo

The Cambridge Climate and Sustainability Forum is a one day annual forum organised by a group of Cambridge University students and run in partnership with the Cambridge Hub. The Forum is aimed at increasing awareness on climate change, sustainability and surrounding issues.

The theme of this year’s forum is ‘Imagine If? The undetermined future of Earth’. The theme aims to draw attention to the unknown fate of our planet and the possible paths we may take in seeking to tackle climate change and ensure sustainable living. This year’s forum is particularly focused on an interdisciplinary approach, moving beyond an often typical focus on the science of climate change alone; as well as reaching out to the whole of the Cambridge community, beyond those who may be typically interested in climate change and sustainability.

Cambridge Climate and Sustainability Forum 2017
Under this year's theme, ‘Imagine If? The undetermined future of Earth’, this year's forum aims to draw attention to the unknown fate of our planet and the possible paths we may take in seeking to tackle climate change and ensure sustainable living. This year’s forum is particularly focused on an interdisciplinary approach, moving beyond an often typical focus on the science of climate change alone; as well as reaching out to the whole of the Cambridge community, beyond those who may be typically interested in climate change and sustainability. The speakers and workshops offered on the day fit in with our broader theme, with focus cast upon both the present issues and dilemmas presented by climate change, and future scenarios and possible solutions to tackle them.
