Climate Change and Global Finance

The third of the North American Three Capitals Webinars

The third instalment of our Three Capitals Webinars series was a conversation with Mark Carney, the UN Special Envoy for Climate Action and Finance.

More than three-hundred Oxonians and friends of Oxford from around the world came together, to hear Mr Carney’s views and to question him on how the international financial architecture could work for climate action, rather than against it.

This webinar series is joint project of the Oxford University societies in Mexico City, Ottawa, and Washington DC. This event was moderated by our chapter.

Climate change is a notoriously incendiary subject, one at the conjunction of science and politics, where the burdens and benefits of action and inaction are bitterly contested. We are grateful for Mr Carney for offering his views to us, with warmth and thoughtfulness.

Oxford Climate Alumni Network

Launch of a new Oxonian network on climate change

The new Oxford Climate Alumni Network (OxCAN) will launch online, on 08 September 2020.  OxCAN is a collaborative initiative by the Oxford Climate Society, Oxford alumni, the Oxford Environmental Change Institute, and academics across University departments.

Date: Tuesday, 08 September 2020
Time: 12h00 EDT (16h00 UTC)
Registration: At Eventbrite

The new network will connect climate-concerned alumni to one another, to the latest research, and to students and initiatives working on climate at the University.

The network organisers have  also created a 10-minute consultation to hear directly from Oxonians about our climate-related interests and experiences.
