SPRI Review 2006: Projecting the Significance of the Polar Regions

Projecting the Significance of the Polar Regions

Institute staff have continued to give considerable time to stimulating public interest in the Arctic and Antarctic through, for example, media work, public lectures and visits by schools to our polar museum. Appearances were made by staff on both radio and television, including BBC and ITV news programmes. Views and quotations on polar topics, many of which include an emphasis on high-latitude environmental change issues, have also appeared in newspapers and journals at home and abroad, including The Times, The Independent and The Washington Post and Time Magazine. Several staff have given external talks at primary and secondary schools, in addition to academic seminars at British and foreign universities. Our regular series of Saturday evening Public Lectures, organized by Bob Headland (Lent Term) and Celene Pickard (Michaelmas Term), also attracts audiences of up to 100.
