Join us on Friday 29th March for the University of Leeds Annual Student Sustainability Research Conference 2019 (#UoLSSRC19).
Register through Eventbrite to attend at http://uolssrc.eventbrite.co.uk
Building on last year’s conference, this is an event not to be missed; an opportunity to experience the latest sustainability research and projects taking place at Leeds, to network, collaborate, develop meaningful contacts and to broaden your understanding the challenges faced in a changing world.
This year’s keynote speech will be delivered by University of Leeds Chancellor Professor Dame Jane Francis. As Director of the British Antarctic Survey and a prominent polar scientist, Dame Francis has conducted pioneering research – with numerous expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctic – and has undertaken a wide range of international roles to promote the UK’s polar interests. Jane will be discussing her experiences to date, her thoughts on single-use plastics as well as the recent launch of the University of Leeds and Leeds University Union #2023PlasticFree campaign.
Over the course of the day, there will be a poster exhibition in Parkinson Court, along with morning and afternoon presentation sessions and workshops. Expect to see updates from projects using the campus as a test bed as part of the #LeedsLivingLab programme, as well as research taking place across the Leeds city region, and wider national and international sustainability projects.
A full programme will be made available soon at http://sustainability.leeds.ac.uk/ssrc19.
This is a free event and is open to all however spaces are limited so please register in good time.
