 LECTURE TITLE: ‘Mountaineering in a Changing Climate’  – organised  by the University of Cambridge Forum for Sustainability and the Environment

Mountains have always captured the imagination of travellers and the
people who live near them and more recently, they have turned into
important indicators of the world’s changing climate. A panel including
eminent mountaineers, a glaciologist and two Tibetan scholars will use
their experiences of mountain landscapes to talk about changes they have
seen over their lifetimes, what those changes indicate and the future
challenges surrounding environmental stewardship of these extreme
environments.

Speakers include Doug Scott, Kurt Diemberger and Professor George Kaser.
Tsering Dawa and Lobsang Yongdan will also give an insight into the
significance of mountains in the “Land of Snow” and the role they play
in local environmental knowledge.

FUNDRAISING FOR:  Auction of  mountain prints signed by world class mountaineers to raise funds for CAN
