Hear Bristol alumnus Dr David Kanter give a talk on one of the most important environmental issues of the twenty-first century.

Join the US Foundation Inc in Manhattan for a talk by Dr David Kanter, Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies at NYU, speak on Monday 11 June, with drinks and canapés throughout the evening.

David’s research examines the interconnected challenges of nitrogen pollution, food security and sustainable development. His talk on 11 June will explore the implications of what a more focused and integrated approach to mitigating nitrogen pollution would mean for affecting climate change, and improving food security, farmer welfare and industry profitability, including across much of the developing world.

David is a Bristol graduate who took the ground-breaking BSc Chemistry and Law.

David is currently Assistant Professor at NYU, exploring nitrogen pollution and how to develop policies that reflect its unique chemistry.

Hosted by your US Foundation Inc Chair Lesley Silvester, and Board Member Leslie Stevens, the event is sure to attract a crowd. As well as hearing David’s talk, it will be an ideal opportunity to network with fellow Bristol alumni in the New York area.
