Distinguished Lecture Series

A series of public lectures featuring distinguished lecturers on the theme of 'Sustainable Development' will be held on Wednesday evenings in Peterhouse, 6.30 for 7.00 p.m. beginning 5 February, 2003.

Topics covered will range from 'Environmental sustainability' to 'Science and Technology Strategies for a Sustainable Society'. Seven lectures are currently planned, and they will be video linked to an audience at MIT.

Details are available from the web site of CUED's Centre for Sustainable Development.

All are welcome to attend.

Global warming, climate change, resource depletion, wastefulness and pollution generation are some of the difficult problems we face. An MPhil in Engineering for Sustainable Development is now offered at Cambridge and this course has been designed to enhance the technical skills of practising engineers, through a better understanding of the issues surrounding Sustainable Development, and through an improved awareness of the commercial and management techniques to deliver more sustainable practices in their own working environments.

For further details about the lectures or the MPhil, please contact: Dr R.A.Fenner 01223 765626; raf37@eng.cam.ac.uk
