Event description

Description

You are warmly invited to attend the 43rd Annual Convocation Lecture, by Dr Hans Friederich, PhD 1982, FRGS.

Dr Hans Friederich recently left his post as the European Regional Director of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Hans had a 24 year career with IUCN, working for most of that time in Africa and Asia. He negotiated multi-million dollar contracts for wetlands programmes in Uganda and Vietnam, for national environmental policy assistance programmes in Ethiopia and Tanzania, and for water management programmes in the Mekong River basin. He became the first expatriate advisor in Vietnam’s Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment, and then took up post as the IUCN’s Representative in Hanoi for which he was awarded the Vietnam Government’s ‘Medal for Science and Technology’. Returning to Europe from Asia, Hans was in charge of developing and managing key strategic partnerships and donor relations for IUCN at the global level for five years before taking up his post as Regional Director for Europe.

Hans' global experience combined with his more recent work in Europe provides him with an unparalleled perspective on the challenges to biodiversity in our continent at a time of population change, economic crisis and global warming.

All alumni, friends, staff and students are welcome to attend. The lecture will be followed by drinks and an opportunty to meet and network with other alumni, students and staff.


This is a free event but please note that spaces are limited.
