Climate and Energy: Our Future at Stake?

Something important, clever and cost free!

On Sunday in the Arts Centre Conference Room at 3:30pm as part of One World Week there is a One World Forum entitled: "Climate and Energy: Our Future at Stake?"

The focus on the debate is on the changing environment, sustainability of natural energy resources and whether the actual climate changes are man made or natural or part of both.

Obviously the debate will be scuplted by the pannel which is comprised of:

Stephen Tindale
Executive Director of Greenpeace

Dr Nick Riley
Project manager from the British Geological Survey

Dr Bettina Wittneben
Senior Research Fellow from the Wuppertal Institute

Kendra Okonski
Enivornmental Programme Manager from the International Policy Network

Dr John Adsetts
Deputy Chair, Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre

These are all important names, if you "google" any of them: you will find they have interesting differing view points and something to offer us on this current hot topic.

So what do I want you to do?

I want you to attend on Sunday and listen to these fascinating people battle out their ideas and bring something away from it! I promise it will be lively and entertaining!

This event is Organised by One World Week in co-ordination with Atomic and The Chemistry Department.

Atomic Bowling

The aftermath effects of the Coventry pub crawl are yet to be calculated, however at this stage I will comment I have never seen a sheep on a pub crawl before!

Anyway… Atomic's next adventure into the world of the fantastically absurb is Atomic Bowling in Leamington next Tuesday (Week 4). Meet in "The Bar" (Rootes Social Building) 6:30pm or in Kelsey's (Leamington Spa) 7:30pm!

Here's a sample of some of the antics from the pub crawl to wet your appetite for Atomic's next social! (Thanks to Ian for the photos!) More of which will be on Atomic's website soon!

See you all soon!


And just for Matt here is Tommy and the Sheep…

Atomic Coventry Pub Crawl

Ok guys, it's that time of year again, Tuesday Week 2 - Atomic Coventry Pub Crawl!

Meet in Cholo at 6:30pm or Varsity in Coventry at 7pm.

Simple as that- most of you know the rest!

If you're new to Warwick however- Atomic's first pub crawl of the year is always one of the finest… Lots of fun and frollicks for all! We take you round the bright streets of Coventry, and make sure you're back at home on time so you can be tucked up in bed with a book and a cup of bovril. What society can do better than that?


I'll see you all there then ;-)
