Global Environment & Society Academy

Our Changing World

The Our Changing World series, now in its ninth year, is a credit-bearing course that opens its doors to the public, who we invite to attend fascinating and accessible talks alongside our students. This year's theme is 'identity'.

Leading scholars and researchers from across different disciplines around the University will discuss everything from how cultural influences shape developing identities in children, to the ethics of how our personal data can be harvested and used.
