The Bristol Poverty Institute (BPI) are pleased to announce an upcoming online interdisciplinary seminar on the topic of Energy and Fuel Poverty and Sustainable Solutions on Thursday 14 May from 10:00-11:30.

We will also be joined by Hannah Spungin, the Project Manager at Bristol City Council currently working on the city’s new Fuel Poverty Action Plan. We will then move onto a facilitated discussion, in which all attendees will be encouraged to participate. Participants are welcome to discuss issues related to energy/fuel poverty and sustainable solutions on local, national or international scales, and can explore any relevant aspect including but not limited to sustainable energy/fuel models, green energy technologies, dimensions of energy and fuel poverty, trade-offs between sustainability and wellbeing, law and policy, ethics, and social inclusion and exclusion.

Places are limited, so please register early to avoid disappointment.

To register your interest please email Registered attendees will be provided with information on how to join the online seminar. This event is open to all University of Bristol academics at all career stages (including PhD researchers).

This seminar is part of the BPI’s interdisciplinary seminar series. These seminars focus on broad themes relevant to poverty research which can be explored from a variety of different perspectives. The key aims of this seminar series are to facilitate networking, to showcase the range and value of research taking place on poverty-relevant themes across schools and faculties, to expose researchers to different perspectives and approaches, and to set collaborations in motion. We also welcome participants who are not currently working directly on poverty-focussed projects, as a key purpose of these seminars is to bring together researchers working in relevant fields and to try and expand the community of UoB researchers engaged with poverty-relevant issues. 

We hope to ‘see’ you there!
