Developing a Culture of Sustainability
14th March 2011, 14.00-17.30
Meeting Room 2, Bailrigg Conference Centre
A half day symposium that will consider the complexity in adopting a sustainable approach for individuals, organisations and society. We will also discuss how the University should respond to the sustainability research agenda in terms of:
- The development of an increasingly multi-disciplinary approach and cross university collaborations.
- Begin to articulate the strengths of Lancaster University's research in this area to ensure that our maximum contribution is captured and hopefully exploited when significant funding opportunities emerge.
- Position ourselves to provide advice to external organisations, and consider our own position as a campus based university in this regard.
In order to give the discussions a specific focus, we will consider how to develop a culture of sustainability.
