Geopolitics and Climate Change

Royal Holloway Geography Taster Day

Tuesday 5th July 2022, 10.00 – 15.00

Virtual Taster Day (Zoom)

This RHUL Taster Day will showcase some of the exciting research undertaken by lecturers in the Geography Department at Royal Holloway University of London. You will see four sample lectures from our experts that cover the breadth of our curriculum, and receive a virtual tour of our beautiful leafy campus. The lectures will cover climate change and humans, Antarctica climate change and geopolitics. These lectures will highlight the physical processes and impacts of climate change, and the diverse impacts of this on society.

This taster day will run as an online event, and will include interactive discussions with staff and other students. You will have the opportunity to discuss the critical challenges highlighted in the lectures and ask any questions to our expert lecturers.

The Taster Day will include an exciting Climate Change Summit, where you will have the opportunity to participate in a Mock Summit to learn about the political and social aspects shaping humanity’s response to climate change.

You will have the opportunity to learn about our various exciting degree schemes, including:

  • BSc / BA Geography
  • BSc Physical Geography / BA Human Geography
  • BA Geography, Culture and Identity
  • BA Geography, geopolitics and global affairs
  • Bas Geography, Environment and Climate

"Climate Change: The FAQ’s "is a dissemination video created by an international team of scientists to answer the most common questions asked by young students about the climate change. The video has been funded by the program "Cuenta la Ciencia" of the Fundación General del CSIC.

Monday Night Lectures are organised during the Autumn term every year. We are aiming to run these again for 2020/2021 but due to COVID19 these may be online events. Please check our social media feed and this website for updates. Lectures cover the range of Physical and Human geography across the degree spectrum and are aimed at adding insight to core elements of the curriculum. Previous lectures have included: climate change, volcanic geohazards, arid environments, glaciers, urban geographies and geographies of place and geographies of the global south.

We have a thriving science community here at Royal Holloway, with world-class pioneering research, so this is a great opportunity for everyone to come along and discover some of the exciting things that we are up to. At Royal Holloway, it is important for us to engage the next generation in these subjects and make it fun as part of the national celebrations in British Science Week.

Through the range of activities at Royal Holloway Science Festival, we can demonstrate the wide-ranging impact of science and explore the latest technological advances together.

This special day really does have something to offer for all ages and will leave you inspired!

All events are free and there's something to suit all ages - bring your friends and families along to this popular community event.

In March 2019, around 6,000 visitors joined us for an exciting day of science discovery. Watch some of the highlights from 2019 in our film below:
