Making the impossible possible Souvient - The Cambridge Podcast

    • Society & Culture

Turning the impossible into the possible – can we win the race against time to beat climate change?
The climate emergency is the defining issue of our time. In response, St John’s College launched a series of ‘big and demanding’ climate crisis commitments to help the College reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
In the latest episode of Souvient Heather Hancock, Master of St John’s, talks to a trio of St John’s experts who all work at the forefront of their fields of research focusing on cutting edge technological advances around energy.
Featuring Professor Sir Richard Friend, Cavendish Professor of Physics, Professor Erwin Reisner, Professor of Energy and Sustainability, and Professor Andy Woods, Director of the Institute for Energy and Environmental Flows and Chair of the College’s Energy Transition Working Group.
The lively and informative discussion covers everything from how scientific theory is being turned into reality, to what needs to be done to halt the damage being done by the climate crisis.
 
Souvient is taken from Souvent me Souvient, the medieval French motto of St John’s College founder, Lady Margaret Beaufort, the matriarch of the Tudor dynasty. Souvent me Souvient, usually translated as ‘I often remember’, or ‘remember me often’, is illustrated with little forget-me-not blue flowers.
