It was a fun morning of cakes and history at IH, as we took some time to commemorate the anniversary of our official opening on May 24, 1958. Along with enjoying blue and yellow cupcakes, we participated in an IH word search with a special 'Panda Pack' prize, a 'guess how many lollies in the jar' competition, viewings of historical films of IH, and a display featuring historical photos and issues of the student magazine Satadal. Dr Caitlin Stone our librarian & archivist who organised the event said her favorite quote of the morning was, 'This is history. It's so cool!'

🌍✨What an enlightening afternoon at International House with Professor Joseph Camilleri OAM. His presentation on "What is Stopping Effective Climate Action?" was not only thought-provoking but also a deep dive into the urgent challenges and potential solutions for our planet πŸŒ±πŸ’‘Joe's insights, backed by compelling data from NOAA, Global Forest Watch, World Meteorological Organisation, Copernicus, ESA SMOS & CryoSat-2, brought to light the critical windows we still have to influence positive change. Every point discussed opened new avenues for thought, pushing IHers to consider their role and keep the conversation going🌐🀝
