MSCL Colloquium

This June, we kicked off our Tuesday’s MSCL Colloquiums series – an open place for discussion and academic reflection on science communication and planetary health. The aim is to have an open space for intellectual thought and reflection on this multidisciplinary topic for the community, students, and practitioners.
