Four researchers from the University of Bristol will discuss their work on sustainability, including furthering antibiotic discovery, converting CO2 to renewable fuels, improving community participation in water management and mitigating the impact of fertilisers on local ecology.

Please join us for a lively and engaging discussion from 6pm to 7:30pm, followed by a drinks reception.
