Geography Society/Mental Health Society and Department of Geography Lecture #MUHAPPYCAMPUS: MAPPING HEALTHY PLACES AT MAYNOOTH UNIVERSITY On April 8th, 2016 students from the GY628 Landscape and Healing module and staff from the Department of Geography carried out a public mapping event in the University Library that mapped locations on campus that were identified by students and staff as 'favourite places' and at the same time, 'less favoured places'. Participants stuck pins in maps, filled out post-it notes and went on co-walks to identified sites and provided evidence on student/staff opinion on identifiably 'healthy sites' on campus. This presentation will report back on the event on; why we did it, how we did it, what we found out and how this might flag up the importance of thinking about health and wellbeing in the future development of campus life. Please come along and join in the conversation.

Professor Kevin Anderson: The Road from Paris: Low Carbon World or Dangerous Climate Change? In this presentation, Kevin Anderson will revisit the scale of the climate challenge, arguing that whilst the science of climate change has progressed, there has been no corresponding acknowledgement of the rate at which our emissions from energy need to be reduced. He will suggest that the Paris Agreement exemplifies this duality. Similarly, he will argue that the focus on green growth continues to eclipse scientific analysis which demonstrates the need fro radical social as well as technical change. Prof. Anderson will develop a quantitative framing of mitigation, based on IPCC carbon budgets, before finishing with more qualitative examples of what a genuine low-carbon future may contain.
