RKE Forum on Sustainability Update

Thanks to everyone who came to last week’s RKE forum on Sustainability.  It was wonderful to see so many people there to start the discussion about sustainability-related RKE activity.

At the forum we proposed establishing a Strategic Research Network for Social and Environmental Resilience. We will be collating the feedback from the session over the next couple of weeks and sharing a proposal for a way forward.

We would like to invite you to join us at the next Futures Forum event which will be held on Friday 11th September 1-4pm (room tbc), where there will be an opportunity to contribute to the development of the new network.  Together we will explore possible aims and objectives as well as ways to achieve them.  There will also be an opportunity to share any sustainability-related RKE activity you are already involved with.

Please send expressions of interest to nicola.kemp@canterbury.ac.uk by Tuesday 1st September.

The Sustainability Team
