Event description

Description

Last year saw a rash of climate emergency declarations from governments (national and local), academic institutions across the globe, representative bodies of numerous professions and industries and many individual businesses.

Why is making a climate declaration important? Has anything changed for those that have? What else can be done to address the emergency?

Hear from speakers immersed in these issues within their organisations, including:

Martin Wiles, Head of Sustainability, University of Bristol

Chris Dunford, Head of Sustainable Futures, We The Curious

Dave Hunter, Consulting Solicitor, Bates Wells

Fiona Ellis, Director, Business Declares

Ben Tolhurst, Head of UK Property Asset Management, JLL

Join the conversation around what businesses, organisations and individuals can do in the face of these crises.

On 12 March 2020, 4pm for 4.15pm to 6pm, followed by drinks.

University of Bristol School of Chemistry, Cantock's Close, Bristol BS8 1TS. Please follow the signs to Lecture Theatre 3.
