Event description
Ecological Dialogues: Sustainable Communities and the Question of Nature (London Met Lab)

About this event

Instigated by the London Met Lab: Environment initiative, a series of talks will showcase the University’s environmental research to stimulate knowledge exchange and dialogue with public and practice audiences. This timely and important series will begin during the COP26 climate-change summit and continue its vital role of raising awareness of the environmental agenda into the new year.

Each talk will be hosted by a different London Met research centre, showing the breadth of research in this field: comprising the university-wide Finding Ecologies group, and the School of Art, Architecture and Design’s Centre for Urban and Built Ecologies (CUBE) and Centre for Creative Arts Culture and Engagement (Creature).

Each talk will be introduced by London Met Lab’s environment challenge lead, Sian Moxon and feature several short, engaging presentations by academic staff from these research centres, followed by a panel discussion and audience questions, chaired by senior research staff.

Topics will explore the climate and ecological emergency, with a particular focus on creating sustainable communities and the value of nature to society.

Organiser of London Met Lab: Environment Knowledge-Exchange Talks

London is the greatest city in the world, but while Londoners enjoy some of the highest standards of living anywhere in the world for many others in the capital it is a different story. Through our civic network, we are on a mission to tackle the inequalities facing London, to improve people’s lives and to deliver social justice. Led by Sophie Cloutterbuck, Director of London Engagement, alongside our staff, students and partners, we are bringing our academic expertise to co-design solutions to the social challenges which disproportionately affect the communities that we serve.
