Description

In association with SPERI: speri.dept.shef.ac.uk

Part of the Festival of Debate: www.festivalofdebate.com

The EU has championed environmental causes, but it hasn't been perfect. Does increased sovereignty post-Brexit create a threat or an opportunity, and how could it help us achieve environmental goals? Join politicians, policy-makers and EU law experts to discuss whether the UK environment will be better off after Brexit.

Speakers:

  • Dr Apolline Roger, School of Law, The University of Sheffield
  • Paul Blomfield MP, Labour Member of Parliament for Sheffield Central
  • Kate Jennings, Head of Site Conservation Policy, RSPB, www.rspb.org.uk
  • James Copeland, Environment and Land Use Adviser for the North East Region, National Farmers Union, www.nfuonline.com
  • Chaired by Daniel Bailey, SPERI, speri.dept.shef.ac.uk
