We will be visiting some of the dozens of events the city will be hosting, while talking about what SFOU has in store for the coming year. Our evening begins at 5pm at Bellevue tram stop. We will then proceed to Galeria Kogan Amaro (GKA) to see an exhibit by Brazilian artist Mundano.
Young SFOU has a distinct focus on more recent graduates, but all members are welcome and encouraged to attend our events.

Time TBC: A review of the key climate change takeaways from World Economic Forum
The Chancellor of Oxford University, Lord Patten of Barnes, who chaired the Nominating Committee, said: ‘Irene Tracey was born in Oxford and educated at a local comprehensive and Oxford University, for which she has now been proposed as the next Vice-Chancellor. It is an extraordinary story of personal achievement, social mobility and academic excellence. I doubt whether anyone knows more about the University and all its aspects than today’s Warden of Merton. She also, as an internationally recognised scientist, has considerable experience at home and abroad. I am sure she will build successfully on the outstanding achievements of Louise Richardson and lead Oxford in coping with the big challenges which lie ahead.’
