The ESI Lecture Series: explore and discuss some of the biggest environmental problems of the 21 century


ESI Lecture Series

The Environment and Sustainability Institute (ESI) Lecture Series is a programme of events designed to bring together academics, students, professional colleagues and members of the public to explore and discuss some of the biggest environmental problems of the 21st century.  The subject of each lecture will vary but the structure will be broadly consistent: a lecture followed by a question and answer session, concluding with light refreshments and informal conversation.  Lectures will take place at either the University of Exeter, Penryn Campus or in local venues.  Attendance is usually free but booking is required.

The ESI Lecture Series will resume shortly.

Business Events

Our business events provide an opportunity for businesses to engage with, inform and benefit from research taking place within the ESI.

See our latest events here.

Community Events

From time to time the ESI will host one-off events to showcase our research and/or knowledge exchange activities. These events provide the opportunity for interested members of our local community to discover more about our work.

Research events

For our next such event, we would like to invite you to a series of 'Community energy and energy saving' seminars on Friday 19 September, 09.30 for a 10.00 start. Please do pass notice of this seminar series to colleagues and friends who may be interested.

Professor Clare Saunders of the ESI has worked, over the past few years, with colleagues from the University of Southampton on a project called 'Community Based Initiatives in Energy Saving'; this sought to measure whether community group interventions helped households reduce their domestic energy demand. Clare has invited a couple of colleagues from Southampton to come to Cornwall to talk about key research outcomes, and to hold discussions with those interested in energy, energy saving, smart metering, community engagement, etc.

Fuller details of this event are available here.
