IUCA and a congregation
Two events of note this week. The IUCA held an online press conference to mark the launch of its declaration to the G20, exerting them to commit to post-COVID investments that prioritised carbon reduction and climate change mitigation (/https://www.universitiesforclimate.org/announcement/). I was one of the people who helped draft this statement. Unfortunately, the event was ambushed by a pro-Trump climate change denial organisation which disrupted proceedings by shouting and making noises. After they got thrown out of the call things proceeded OK. Later in the week we held yet another virtual event with the filming for the congregation to award degrees to the class of 2020. We have to admit that they and their contemporaries have not had a great last year of education, and now enter the job market at a very difficult time.
