NSEG 15th Anniversary Reunion: Saturday 7 October 2017
15 academic years ago, the MSc Course in Nature, Society and Environmental Policy was set up at the School of Geography and the Environment in Oxford, with the aim of providing a theoretically rigorous, research-focused course, demanding cross-disciplinary engagement and critical thinking about a range of contemporary environmental challenges.
Since the first cohort of 'NSEPers' graduated in September 2003, another 400 students from 35 countries have followed them and embarked on exciting environmental careers, and more over the course itself has evolved, eventually changing its name from 'Policy' to 'Governance' in 2015.
It is therefore high time to celebrate and bring together alumni, graduating and incoming students as well as past and current staff for an afternoon and evening of discussion and networking.
