London Met Lab: Environment Knowledge-Exchange Talks

Instigated by the London Met Lab: Environment initiative, a series of talks will showcase the University’s environmental research to stimulate knowledge exchange and dialogue with public and practice audiences. This timely and important series will begin during the COP26 climate-change summit and continue its vital role of raising awareness of the environmental agenda into the new year.

Each talk will be hosted by a different London Met research centre, showing the breadth of research in this field: comprising the university-wide Finding Ecologies group, the School of Art, Architecture and Design’s Centre for Urban and Built Ecologies (CUBE) and the Centre for Creative Arts Culture and Engagement (Creature).

Each talk will be introduced by London Met Lab’s environment challenge lead, Siân Moxon, and feature several short, engaging presentations by academic staff from these research centres, followed by a panel discussion and audience questions, chaired by senior research staff.

Topics will explore the climate and ecological emergency, with a particular focus on creating sustainable communities and the value of nature to society.
