Event: The Politics of Climate Change

15 July 2021 | 14.15-15.00


Published July 7, 2021

Join Professor Gail Whiteman, Professor of Sustainability at the University of Exeter Business School, as she talks to figures from across the political spectrum about the influence politicians at all levels can have on environmental issues such as plastic pollution, sustainable food production, biodiversity loss and green energy. We will consider the impact of policy at a local, national and global level and why young people should consider politics when looking to make a difference.
