The conference will present some of the research on which the new Institute will build and aims to spark a debate with the academic community and the public at large around the policy challenges the Institute’s research programme will seek to address.

The programme includes talks from Professor Paul Gregg, Professor Anna Gilmore and Dr David Galbreath as well as a panel discussion chaired by Iain Stewart, Professor of Geoscientific Communication at the University of Plymouth and presenter of several BBC TV series, including How to Grow A Planet.
