Welcome to the 6th pub meeting of the PhD student network in Göteborg!

We will meet on December 7 (next Wednesday!) at 18.30 at Rumpan Bar, Linnégatan 38b.

This meeting will be hosted by David Bryngelsson and Niclas Mattsson at the department of Energy and Environment at Chalmers. The theme is inspired by the ongoing climate summit in Durban. We plan to give a short introduction to the basics of climate change, discuss the challenges we face and why it is so hard to reach international agreement, and finally show you how we can change our energy system to deal with the problem.

Please RSVP by e-mail to Niclas, niclas@chalmers.se, and pre-order food from the following menu if you wish to eat. There is a limit to how many people we can squeeze in, so sign up quickly (and please cancel by e-mail if you get other plans)!
