Hear from and put your questions to our expert panellists from Bournemouth University and BCP Council to hear what our university is doing to take climate action, what role universities and local communities should play, and how we can all act in the lead up to COP26 and the future.
2021 has been called the year of climate action, and the scientific evidence that we must act, and act now, is overwhelming. Having been ranked as fourth in the UK for Climate Action, Bournemouth University has recently launched its Climate & Ecological Crisis Action Plan with the goal to be net zero emissions across all our activities by 2030/31.
We are delighted to launch Bournemouth University’s Climate Month with an expert panel, to share our new Climate & Ecological Crisis Action Plan and talk about what we, as a university and community, need to do and can do to tackle the crisis.
Chaired by Stuart Laird, BU Sustainability Committee chair and Director of Estates, our panellists are:
Lois Betts, BU Sustainability Manager
Dr Karen Thompson, Senior Lecturer In Leadership Strategy &Organisations and co-chair of the Sustainability Academic Network
Naomie Lebe, President of Students’ Union Bournemouth University (SUBU)
Dr Philip Riris, Lecturer in Archaeological & Palaeo-environmental Modelling and member of COP26 Universities Network
Neil Short, BCP Council Sustainability Manager
The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A session.
