Commenting on the LSBU website, Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Pat Bailey, who is a career-long advocate of sustainability and environmental change in Higher Education, said: “The University sector is standing at a crossroads with regard to our sustainability commitments, and to have such an eminent environmentalist as Jonathon Porritt explain the ramifications of the path we take next promises to be an enlightening and potentially controversial evening of discussion.”

The event is open to all and free to attend but prior registration is required.
