Safeguarding Spring
Pollutants, policy and public (mis)understanding

Brunel University's Institute for the Environment invites you to a symposium to launch the 
Weybridge +15 Report, commissioned and published by the European Environment Agency,
on
‘The impacts of Endocrine
 
Disrupters on Wildlife, People and Their Environments’ -
and an update on the science presented in 1996 at the first
European and OECD conference on this issue held in Weybridge, UK.

 

The occasion will also celebrate the recent receipt of The Queen’s Anniversary Prize by the
Brunel Institute for the Environment team,
in recognition of 20 years of research on endocrine
disrupting chemicals. This is the highest mark of excellence a UK University can attain.


The symposium, chaired by Sir Tom Blundell, will include presentations from
leading experts in the field, panel discussions and followed by a special
 celebratory dinner held in honour of the Institute’s success.
