Thank you to everyone involved with Sustainable Earth 2017

Sustainable Earth 2017 was a two-day event which took place in the University of Plymouth's Rolle Marquee on Thursday 29 and Friday 30 June 2017.

It offered the opportunity for researchers, businesses, community groups and individuals to hear speakers, network and join in with workshops designed to spark ideas and encourage collaborations to tackle global challenges.

The themes for this event were based on the Global Challenge Research Fund (GCRF). GCRF is a £1.5 billion fund announced by the UK Government to support cutting-edge research that addresses the challenges faced by developing countries. Find out more.
