The Centre for Law and Enterprise: Responses to the Climate Emergency and Biodiversity Crisis

12 March 2020, 4.00 PM - 12 March 2020, 6.00 PM

School of Chemistry, Cantock's Close, Bristol BS8 1TS

Last year saw a rash of climate emergency declarations from governments (national and local), academic institutions across the globe, representative bodies of numerous professions and industries and many individual businesses. Why is making a climate declaration important? Has anything changed for those that have? What else can be done to address the emergency? Join the conversation around what businesses, organisations and individuals can do in the face of these crises. Hear from speakers immersed in these issues within their organisations, including:

  • Martin Wiles, Head of Sustainability, University of Bristol
  • Chris Dunford, Head of Sustainable Futures, We The Curious
  • Dave Hunter, Consulting Solicitor, Bates Wells
  • Fiona Ellis, Director, Business Declares
  • Ben Tolhurst, Head of UK Property Asset Management, JLL
  • Martin Parker, Professor of Management, Lead of the Inclusive Economy Initiative, University of Bristol
  • Nina Boeger, Reader in Law and Director of the Centre for Law and Enterprise, University of Bristol Law School

This talk will take place on Thursday 12th March 2020, 16:00 for a 16.15 start - finishing at 18:00, followed by drinks.
