Extracurricular Lecture - The Rapidly Changing Arctic
On Thursday 25th January, a number of A-level geography students attended an afterschool extracurricular lecture on the Rapidly Changing Arctic hosted by the Black Country branch of the Geographical Association. The talk was presented by Prof Terry Callaghan, a lead author and advisor for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change whose work led to an award for the Nobel Prize alongside Al Gore.
Students learnt about issues such as global sustainability, pollution, ecosystems and environments under stress. There were many excellent questions from the audience and the students got the chance to find out how the world may begin to change into the future and the repercussions of these changes.
