Four C3W affiliated staff members recently convened a conference for 6th form students considering their future studies and careers.  Held at Bangor University and organised by Dr Lynda Yorke, the aim of the day was to give short talks to offer an insight into current issues such as climate change, energy security, natural hazards and disasters. The event was attended by 40 pupils and 10 teachers from schools across North Wales.

Dr Saskia Pagella spoke about the climate change, its impacts and the potential adaptations, Dr Karen Parkhill covered Energy Geographies, and Dr Katrien Van Landeghem covered glaciation and C3W’s partnered project, Britice-Chrono, whilst Dr Yorke spoke about Tectonic Environments

Co-organiser Nicola Hawley of St Gerard’s School said; “This was a great inaugural event which raises the profile of geography and geographers in North Wales” After the success of the event, organisers have decided they will be running the conference again next year.
