Please join us for the first annual Bristol in Conversation event. Each year, the event will focus on a new subject area and feature alumni who are at the forefront of that field. Our Natural World is the inaugural theme, and the panel is comprised of outstanding alumni voices in wildlife conservation and filmmaking.
The panel will feature Dr Mike Gunton (BSc 1979), Creative Director of BBC Natural History, and Gillian Burke (BSc 1995), presenter of BBC Springwatch. Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Evelyn Welch MBE, will be in attendance to welcome guests.
The panel discussion will be facilitated by Professor Daniela Schmidt, Professor at the School of Earth Science at the University of Bristol. Her research focuses on assessing past climate change, as well as understanding modern processes to better assess risk, impact and the potential for ecosystem adaptation.
The panel event will take place on Friday 9 June 2023, 6 to 9 pm at Priory Road Complex, followed by a reception at Senate House.
These panellists work at the crossroads of media and conservation, using documentary filmmaking as a tool to inspire the public and create change. The discussion will focus on our rapidly changing world and the ways in which each of our panellists hope to educate others and protect our precious planet.
Following the panel, there will be an opportunity to network and make new connections over drinks and food at a reception at Senate House.
You’ll also have the opportunity to learn more about the University’s conservation work and meet members from the University's regional alumni networks to find out ways that you can get involved.
This is a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with your Bristol alumni community and hear from leading voices in the fight for a more sustainable future.
Looking for some family-friendly activities? The Bristol Festival of Nature will also be running from 9 to 18 June. You can view a full list of their activities here.
