Want to catch up on this year’s 21st Century Challenges Policy Forum events? A range of outputs, including audio recordings, video interviews, and summaries, are now available online
The Society’s 21st Century Challenges Policy Forum events invite professionals to consider the big social, environmental and economic challenges of our time.
Policy Forum events in 2016 have explored European migration, London’s housing crisis, achieving sustainable flood risk management, and rescaling the UK’s energy system.
You can now listen to audio recordings of each panel discussion through the 21st Century Challenges website. Video interviews with a number of panellists are also available, where geographers and other expert contributors discuss their views on Policy Forum topics. Finally, if you are interested in exploring each topic in more detail, blog posts provide a summary of the key points from each discussion meeting and an overview of recent policy developments in each topic area.
All outputs are conveniently listed on each Policy Forum event’s webpage.
The next Policy Forum event, on 16 March 2017, will explore social and demographic change in the UK.
