Environment and Society Forum

Many vital issues currently placed high on governmental agendas have important geographical dimensions. Geographers, with their knowledge of both social and environmental processes are well placed to contribute to solutions. The Forum's events bring together business, research, non-governmental and policy-making communities within a neutral and respected setting.

The next event in the series is on 11 May 2015, on the topic of extreme storms. Registration is now open.
