The British Science Festival takes place in Coventry and Warwickshire from 10-13 September, and there will be plenty of sessions looking at topical issues through a geographical lens.
The Festival is the longest standing science festival in Europe, and grew out of the traditional meetings of the British Science Association, which were first held in 1831. There has always been a geographical element to the Festival and the Society has worked closely with the British Science Association to ensure that geography is well represented each year.
This year Professor of Global Energy, Michael Bradshaw, of the University of Warwick has convened a panel of experts to discuss current and possible future trends in energy consumption and the issues associated with the UK’s low carbon energy transition. And Dr Matthew Blackett of Coventry University will discuss how satellite monitoring can prevent major disasters and help save lives.
