Environmental Sustainability Conference
On Wednesday 11th November 2015 we held our inaugural Environmental Sustainability Conference. The first event of its kind at Edinburgh Napier, with a focus towards highlighting and sharing both academic and professional best practice covering all environmental aspects covered within the University. The event was attended by 39 staff and students representing a range of schools and departments.
We plan to run a conference again in November 2017. As per 2015, the conference will be open to everyone. The Environmental Sustainability Team will contact potential attendees and speakers from June 2017. Please do not hesitate to contact Jamie Pearson for more information or to note your interest in attending.
