And we’re off!

After a very unrestful and disruptive Christmas and New Year (all my own fault, but well there you go) teaching kicked off this week with the start of Semester 2. This means that the Global Challenges module has finally begun. It’s my intention to get as much public engagement with the module as possible. To that end I’ve created a new website:

This will include course material such as reading lists, lecture slides and notes and (hopefully – if everything works!) videos of our guest lecturers. I’m particularly excited about that. We’ve managed to arrange an impressive line up of speakers who will be giving their take on the global challenges. These are world experts in their field and are often to be found advising governments and NGOs. Collectively their lectures will prove to be an important contribution to how we can effectively engage with the global challenges.
