Student Pugwash encourages young people to examine the ethical, social and global implications of science and technology, and to make these concerns a guiding focus of their academic and professional endeavours. At Cambridge we have regular meetings to provide an opportunity for discussion of Pugwash-related topics. Each term guest speakers are also invited to talk on the many complexities surrounding these issues.
