Exeter College welcomes Bianca Jagger

Exeter College was delighted to host Bianca Jagger, the prominent social and human rights activist and former actress, for an informal and intimate supper on 13 November. Ms Jagger visited Exeter College following her speech at the Oxford Climate Forum on Friday evening.

Several of Exeter’s students were involved in the Climate Forum, including Alex Clark (2015, Global Governance and Diplomacy) and Luke Maxfield (2013, Earth Sciences), which brings together senior policymakers, thinkers, and advocates to address the issues of climate change and the need to act now.

Ms Jagger joined current Exeter students, as well as a number of others who had attended the Climate Forum at the Saïd Business School, and talked to them about her passion to see world leaders commit to reducing CO2 emissions and preventing catastrophic climate change. This was her second visit to Exeter College, having joined Wangari Maathai when she planted the College’s Walnut Tree in the Fellows’ Garden in 2007 to launch a campaign to plant a billion trees worldwide. Ms Jagger expressed her desire to return to Exeter again and speak to current students further. We look forward to welcoming her back!
