Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership

We were delighted to offer platform members and partners the opportunity to attend these exclusive webinars, which ran on a weekly basis in the lead-up to Easter 2022.

Led by Fellows from our The Prince of Wales Global Sustainability Fellowship Programme, each webinar focused on the work of a different Fellow, with subjects including decent work, the environmental impact of food, climate risks in aviation, and collaborative approaches to electric transport transitions. The presentations were followed by Q&A sessions, where attendees were able to ask questions of the Fellows and enjoy insightful discussions in an interactive and relaxed setting.

Recordings of each presentation can be found below:

Exploring pathways to a just transition to electric transport in East Africa

Outlining his collaborative approach to this transition, the session provided an overview of the potential broader societal benefits and challenges of transitioning to electric bodas.

"Universities contribute to society through the creation of new knowledge and the development of new skills. It is our aspiration to do this in ways that are relevant and purposeful.

The Prince of Wales Global Sustainability Fellowship Programme, hosted by the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership, will help us to do just that by allowing academics to engage productively with business, government and financial institutions for society's benefit – both in the UK and globally."
