CCS Policy Skills Series

The CCS Policy Skills series focuses on empowering students with the skills and knowledge to confidently engage in climate policy and advocacy.
Skills workshops will run alongside interactive sessions designed to provide students with insights into governance spaces from experts, academics and activists.

The new policy programme at CCS will enable students to develop skills that will strengthen pathways from academia at Cambridge to careers in climate policy.

Across Lent term, students will be given the opportunity to take part in expert-led workshops on key competencies such as public speaking and advocacy training.  Sessions will explore local policy, such as the University’s sustainability policy, and global policy in the wake of COP28.

Attendants at any one of these sessions will be encouraged to reflect on their opinions and interactions with climate policy, providing short reflective written responses that will be an integral component of the CCS Student Stocktake Report. Find out about the report here.
