Group of people at a Sustainability and Conservation hub social event

Overview

The commitment is low and in your control at all times - we only ask that you meet up at least once in the first instance! Registration closes on Fri 10th Feb. We will then assign people based on the responses and put you in contact on 13th Feb with some guiding information, support and example questions to consider. We then invite you to arrange a call in your own time or to join this mentoring social event - Sustainability Mentoring Meet-up - on Thur 16th Feb to meet in-person. Or both! Light refreshments & snacks will be provided.

Read Wolfson alumnus Alain Kilajian's experience mentoring Santiago Sottil as Santiago completed his Waste to Art project and became the first recipient of the Wolfson Living Lab Award (2021).

For all those with an interest in sustainability, ecology and climate. The world needs to increase its action, community and knowledge on sustainability, ecological and climate related topics. We therefore invite the international Wolfson community to meet each other to share knowledge, advice and expertise.

Grown from our Theory of Change (Community Resilience branch) from Wolfson’s Sustainability & Conservation Hub, we provide avenues for sustainability-focused Wolfson alumni, Fellows and friends to mentor the Wolfson student body and staff, creating knowledge transfer and cross-talk across our international community. Being a Mentor is as involved or low maintenance as desired, from a casual chat, to occasional advising on work efforts, to actively supporting students in official projects. The level of commitment is very much up to you and the relationship you want to nurture.

 

 

This event is organised by the Interdisciplinary Research Hub on Sustainability & Conservation.

Any queries, please email sc-hub@wolfson.cam.ac.uk with the heading "S&C Mentoring".
