Hosted by ESCom members Kirsty Blackstock, James Hutton Institute & Marc Metzger, University of Edinburgh  discussants Robert Costanza and Ida Kubiszewski will join our colleagues to hear  Scottish academic, policy, NGO and industry perspectives.  In the first hour we will hear from each panel member on their understanding of the ES concept, how they use it in their work and the future for the ES concept,  as they see it. The second hour will be a chance for facilitated discussion around questions submitted by the audience before or during the event.  

The event will close with an informal wine reception.
