About the In Conversation Series: This public event series will feature insightful and honest conversation on key environmental and societal topics between UCL ISR experts and guests from academia, policy, industry and civil society, and is chaired by Dr Matthew Winning (comedian, environmental economist, and author of β€˜Hot Mess’). Our intention for the β€œIn Conversation Seminar” is to create a space for diverse perspectives to share their expertise and experiences of building the sustainable future now to help inform others on their own sustainable transformation journey.

The format of the public event series includes a short twenty-minute presentation from the guest speaker, a five-minute response from an ISR researcher, and then twenty-five minutes Q&A, with refreshments and networking afterwards. The UCL ISR delivers world-leading research, teaching and enterprise in the sustainable use of global resources. Our research themes range from financing the low carbon transition, to sustainability at the water-food-land nexus, to electricity market reform. While our teaching has a strong track record for equipping our graduates with the tools and knowledge to become sustainability leaders in their chosen careers.
