In memory of Louis Rothschild

Home » News » In memory of Louis Rothschild

Louis – one of our much loved students – died tragically on 7 August 2010.

Louis Rothschild registered in 2006 and was awarded the BPhil degree (Cum Laude) in December 2007. He then went on with the MPhil (2008) but did not complete it. Instead he continued with modules! In addition to his BPhil he achieved the following:


Renewable Energy Policy (71%)
Renewable Energy Systems (80%) (Cum Laude)
Solar Energy (80%) (Cum Laude)


Special subject (81%) (Cum Laude)

Those of us who participated in his classes will remember Louis’ enthusiasm, his eagerness to learn and his willingness to grapple with concepts really far from his reach – not ever satisfied until he ‘got it’.  We will miss his caring and his huge kindness. His joy in his wife and baby son completed him. We hold Aviva and Levi in our hearts, and we are deeply grateful for Louis as student, friend and member of the Sustainability Institute family.
