Alumni Festival 2021

This year’s Alumni Festival took place online with an array of fascinating talks, tours and discussions. The Festival featured over 80 sessions across five days, from Friday 24 September to Tuesday 28 September. 

As ever, the Festival offered a range of thought-provoking sessions, tackling the big questions and the small. Alumni joined us to hear why calorie counting is wrong from Giles Yeo, or listened in as a panel of Gates Cambridge scholars explore the future of energy. We closed the Festival on the biggest challenge of our age when Director of Cambridge Zero, Dr Emily Shuckburgh OBE, joined the Vice-Chancellor to discuss the climate emergency. 

Where possible sessions were recorded and will be made available for you to listen to or watch after the Festival. For any questions, or if you’d like more information, take a look at our helpful FAQ page.
