SSE Rīga to offer free Thursday 'mini lectures' to all

Take note – story published 3 years and 3 months ago

Throughout February 2021, the Stockholm School of Economics in Rīga (SSE Rīga) is to host several "mini-lectures" under the title "SSE Rīga Food for Thought", which will be broadcast live to all on Thursday afternoons. 

The first mini-lecture on February 4 will address climate change challenges.

"Global climate change is under way. According to scientific models, it is becoming serious, threatening coastal regions, biodiversity, food security, and vulnerable populations. Despite those prospects, the idea is widespread in Latvia and under Northern latitudes that a few degrees more is not necessarily bad. It could mean better summers, fewer cold winters, longer growing seasons for crops, more tourism... Why is this view misleading?" asks advance publicity.

The lecture "Climate Changes in Latvia and Elsewhere, is it that Bad?" will be delivered by Associate Professor Xavier Landes, who teaches business ethics and sustainability courses to SSE Rīga students.

SSE Riga Bachelor programme students Erika Tereze Vitolina and Silvija Mitniece will also briefly present their Bachelor Thesis project titled "From Biogas to Biomethane: Promises and Challenges".

The lecture is free of charge and open to the public and will take place on February 4th at 16:00 Rīga time (GMT +2) on Zoom.
