Centre for Environment and Society Research
Professorial Inaugural Lecture - Mark Reed
Thursday 29 May 2014, 4pm, Parkside Lecture Theatre, City Centre Campus
'Unearthing Britain's Hidden Landscape'
In this talk, Professor Mark Reed challenges us to look differently at Britain's most overlooked landscape. He uses science, poetry, music and award-winning photography to explain why all of our lives literally depend on a place that most of us actively avoid ever visiting. In doing this, he examines how we and our decision-makers have come to know about a huge threat to this place, and how we need a new way of thinking if we are to solve this and many of the other major environmental challenges that the world faces today.
The lecture will be followed by an opportunity for discussion, and after that there will be refreshments and an opportunity to collect a free DVD and CD of the film and music used in the talk and a children's picture book based on the research. Refreshments will be provided.
