Notice regarding Covid-19:

Dear colleagues,

Following a series of discussions between the organisers and John
Broome, we have made the decision to cancel the FoNTI Workshop on
Climate and Meta-Ethics with John Broome.

Our hope is that this event, or something similar, can be organised at
some point in the future.

Stay safe,
the organising team
