"The CSO is an unrivalled opportunity to develop your environmental knowledge and meet people with similar interests. It asks you to think beyond the traditional curriculum and gives you a glimpse into the decisions world leaders have to make about the climate. The CSO will stretch your environmental knowledge and enable you to become a better essay writer and scientist."
