Leading environmentalist to visit the Cornwall Campus

The University of Exeter Cornwall Campus is to host a public lecture by British campaigner, writer, sustainability advisor and leading environmentalist Tony Juniper on Wednesday 1 May 2013.

Tony will be visiting as part of the promotional tour for the release of his new book - What has Nature Ever Done For Us? How Money Does Really Grow on Trees.

A public lecture will take place on Wednesday 1 May in the Chapel Lecture Theatre at the Cornwall (Tremough) Campus from 6pm until 8pm. Places are limited, so if you would like to attend the event please register here or contact Alex Huke for more information. 

As well as giving a public lecture, Tony will be visiting the University’s Environment and Sustainability Institute (ESI) to find out more about the scientific research and meet academic staff and students.

Alex Huke, Research and Knowledge Exchange Manager for the ESI, said: “Tony is a very influential person and we are really looking to welcoming him to the Cornwall Campus.”

The event has been organised by the ESI and the Cornwall Sustainable Tourism Project (CoaST).

The ESI is working with businesses and enterprises across all sectors of the economy in Cornwall, the Isles of Scilly and beyond to translate research and expertise into innovative business practices, products and services in order to respond to the challenges of environmental change. It has been funded by the European Regional Development Fund Convergence Programme (£22.9M) and the South West Regional Development Agency (£6.6M), with significant support from the Higher Education Funding Council for England.
