Grantham Scholars Go To COP 24

A group of Grantham Scholars were funded by the Grantham Centre to go COP 24. COP 24 is the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. This year it takes place in Katowice, Poland.

Grantham Scholars Jenny Veenstra, Gloria Mensah, Emma Stevens, Jonas Cromwell, George Coiley and Florentine Weber all attended. They represent a range of academic expertise. This is because they come from different departments across the University.

In order to reduce their carbon footprint, George and Florentine even got the train rather than fly!

Jenny and Gloria did great work reporting back from COP 24 via Twitter – you can follow them at @JennyLiVeenstra and @mateko3
