Research without Borders 2017 presents: Environments without borders

10 May 2017, 6.00 PM - 10 May 2017, 7.30 PM

Life Sciences building, Tyndall Avenue, University of Bristol, BS8 1TQ

Research without Borders 2017 and the Cabot Institute present: Environments without borders. 

The impact of environmental change is felt across borders and underlines the need for collaboration across conventional boundaries.  But in today's changing world, what is the most effective response and whose responsibility is it to act? 

At this event, we will travel through time, disciplines and continents to understand how our water environments and the ecosystems they support are changing. We will explore what that means for people and planet, and why we are failing on so many fronts to mitigate serious risks. From the injustice of 'disappearing islands' in the south pacific, to 'invasive aliens', to sea level rise and failed frameworks - we explore some of our major water-related challenges, and discuss what we can do about them.

Join us for a provocative and lively debate, led by a new generation of researchers at the University of Bristol. 

Wednesday 10 May, 6pm to 7:30pm, followed by a drinks reception.
Free and open to all. Please register for free tickets via eventbrite.
