Description

Join us on Friday 29th March for the University of Leeds Annual Student Sustainability Research Conference 2019.

Building on last year's conference, this is an event not to be missed; an opportunity to experience the latest sustainability research and projects taking place at Leeds, to network, collaborate, develop meaningful contacts and to broaden your understanding of the challenges faced in a changing world.

The keynote speech will be delivered by University of Leeds Chancellor Professor Dame Jane Francis. As Director of the British Antarctic Survey and a prominent polar scientist, Dame Francis has conducted pioneering research – with numerous expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctic – and has undertaken a wide range of international roles to promote the UK’s polar interests.

Over the course of the day, there will be a poster exhibition in Parkinson Court, along with morning and afternoon presentation sessions and workshops. Expect to see updates from projects using the campus as a test bed as part of the Living Lab programme, as well as research taking place across the Leeds city region, and wider national and international sustainability projects.

The expected schedule for the day is as follows:

09:00 - 09:30: Registration

09:30 - 10:00: Poster Exhibition and Networking

10:30 - 12:45: Morning Breakout Sessions
