Sustainable Earth 2017 is a two day event taking place in Plymouth University's Rolle Marquee on Thursday 29 and Friday 30 June 2017.
It offers the opportunity for researchers, businesses, community groups and individuals to come together to hear inspirational speakers and join in with creative workshops designed to spark ideas and encourage collaborations to tackle global challenges.
The themes for this event are 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.
Delegate booking for this event will open mid-March 2017.
Call for abstracts (Deadline: Sunday 5 March 2017)
We are inviting papers from the academic community on sustainability research and also organisations interested in highlighting their sustainability related activity and where universities can help in the future.
If you are interested in profiling your sustainability research or initiative and connecting with like-minded people, then this forum is for you!
We are looking for papers on research or initiatives that fit within the following themes. However, we also welcome innovative sustainability research and initiatives from outside of these areas: Health and Hazards, Energy and Climate, Education and Communication, Water and Life, Cities and Communities, and Planetary Change and Resources.
More information about the event and abstract submissions can be found on the Sustainable Earth 2017 website.
