Student Conference on Sustainable Futures

Do you know of any students who would benefit from submitting a piece of work to the Student Conference on Sustainable Futures?


The University will be hosting it’s first Student Conference on Sustainable Futures on 3 February 2017.

This unique event, open to Leeds students at any level (UG, PGT, PGR), from all disciplines, will showcase research, projects and creativity relating to an aspect of sustainability.

The theme of the conference is ‘Sustainable Perspectives on Future Challenges’, a broad theme which could include innovative work in carbon reduction or urban development, challenges in healthcare, social equality, policy and governance, international trade, sustainable energy, the circular economy, food security or any topic which has a positive impact in society.

The conference will consist of a poster exhibition in Parkinson Court, along with oral presentations taking place in morning and afternoon sessions. Projects which take the form of a music, dance, spoken word performance, art installation or practical demonstration will also be hosted in suitable locations throughout the day.

The call for submissions has been extended, and staff are asked to encourage students with a relevant piece of work to submit it.

Submitting is easy, all we need is a completed application form sent to the Sustainability team by the extended deadline – midnight Wednesday 30 November 2016.
