CCSF 2019 : Affecting Every Existence
The Cambridge Climate and Sustainability Festival is a one-day annual festival organised by a group of Cambridge University students and run in partnership with the Cambridge Hub. The Festival is aimed at increasing awareness of climate change, sustainability and 21st Century environmental challenges, and most importantly motivating people to take unilateral and collective action.

At this year’s festival we hope to spin strands of hope into a tale woven over the years with warnings and prophecies of doom. Our theme, “Affecting Every Existence”, aims to engage the audience on how climate change can and will affect each one of us but that every one of us can save countless lives by playing our part in giving back to Mother Nature.
Save the date: the forum will be held on the 16th February 2019! We have an exciting line-up of speakers from around the world, workshops from local organisations actively engaging in sustainability, expert panels and discussions on environmental mitigation and the possibilities to help the climate in every aspect of our lives.

Regularly check our website and Facebook page to stay up-to-date!
