McGill U’s Tim Moore steps down as Chair: On Friday, September 19 the faculty of the Department joined together to thank Tim Moore for over fifteen years of service as Chair. He has always dreamed of playing fly half for the Leicester Tigers (and its looks like they could use his help this year) but have gave up his rugby to pursue a career as an academic at McGill and we are all the better for that decision.


Thanks Tim | Department of Geography - McGill University

"Geography Professor Peter Brown has been awarded $2.5 million over six years to study the impact of human activity on the global ecosystem since the Industrial Revolution, a period scientists refer to as the Anthropocene. A diverse group of academic, government, and NGO partners will take on the challenge of investigating, teaching, and applying a new understanding of human-Earth relationships – with a specific focus on three regional, transboundary challenges: water security, energy resources, and climate justice."
