Spring: MSc GEPS students present at Clinton Global Initiative Event; project highlighted by President Clinton.
Five students from our MSc in Global Environment, Politics and Society programme took part in an international meeting with President Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton in April. They joined over 1,000 students from around the world at the University of California, Berkeley as part of the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) which brings together university students to address global challenges with practical, innovative solutions. Our students were chosen on the basis of projects they designed to address environment and development challenges. One project was mentioned specifically by President Clinton in his closing address. The students were joined by CGI Academic Mentor Prof Elizabeth Bomberg (Programme Director, GEPS and Deputy Director of Global Environment and Society Academy). Find out more about their projects, and follow their participation here: Pachamama Edinburgh
