- Program Description:
Our intensive programme teaches from the SSEE’s strengths in environmental economics and policy, enterprise management, and financial markets and investment. We will explore how we study critical global environmental challenges in the 21st century through the combination of rigorous science and diverse stakeholder engagement and the value of the environment to enterprise.
Designed and delivered by Smith School faculty, the Summer School will explore leading Oxford research on subject-specific questions such as:
Is the 1.5 degree threshold of the Paris climate change agreement possible?
How does climate change affect economic stability?
How do financial markets drive long-term environmental decision-making?
What is the future of energy markets?
How can we safeguard clean water for everyone?
What can corporations do to protect biodiversity?
If you are interested in hearing the latest world-class thinking on these questions and in searching for answers, the Summer School is right for you.
- Setting Description:
- The course teaching is intensive, with lectures, class discussions and exercises constituting around six hours each day, and will take place in the School of Geography and the Environment’s teaching facilities. Outside of the classroom, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the beautiful city and all it has to offer whilst getting to know your classmates and developing a network of international peers and connections for the future.
