Parallel Forum

The aim of setting up a second 'Parallel Forum' is to bring together a cross-disciplinary group of post-docs, Masters and PhD students who are working on sustainability and the environment to explore gaps in what we know and future research questions and opportunities.

This group will run in parallel with the original Forum and meets the following week. Each month, the background papers from the three expert witnesses and their ideas about future research will be used as a starting point for the discussion.

If you would like to find out more about the Parallel Forum, please contact Dr Rosamunde Almond ()
