2020/2021 Seminar Series

The goals of the Queen's School of Environmental Studies (SES) seminar series are to: (a) encourage conversations regarding sustainability and environmental issues from a multidisciplinary perspective and (b) to encourage collaborations and foster a sense of community among SES faculty, students, and staff. All are welcome to attend.

The Environmental Studies Seminar Series will be held virtually on the 2nd Thursday of each month from 2:30 to 3:20 pm. All faculty, staff, and students are strongly encouraged to attend. It's especially important we stay in touch during the COVID19 pandemic and this seminar series is one way for us to connect as a SES community. The format of seminars is flexible (e.g., talk, panel discussion, fireside chat, or PechaKucha). Creative and engaging seminars are especially welcome!
