The Geography Society hosted a lecture on Monday 25th
January by Chris Keylock, a senior prize lecturer from Sheffield University.
The talk was entitled “evolving risk and vulnerability
from snow avalanches”, taking case studies from France, Iceland and Japan.
Over 100 students were treated to a visually and academically engaging talk
from first-hand experience on the impact and differing responses to large
scale, hazardous avalanches. It was great to have Sharnbrook School, Bedford
Girls School and Bedford Modern School students amongst the audience and to
see a good representation from our Geographers in younger years in amongst our
6th form Geographers.
