NetZeroPlus' Ian Bateman joins headline climate panel for British Science Festival 2023

This year the British Science Festival is hosted by the University of Exeter from 7-10 September, bringing pioneering researchers together to share their work with the local audience through talks, activities, interactive events, installations, performances and more.

The Festival has announced speakers for its headline climate panel, including Professor Ian Bateman OBE, Director of the Land, Environment, Economics and Policy Institute (LEEP) at the University of Exeter alongside environmentalist and activist Mya-Rose Craig, Extinction Rebellion’s former spokesperson, Zion Lights and Exeter-based science communicator and author, Sophie Pavelle.

The event will take place on Saturday 9 September at Exeter Cathedral and the panel will be discussing the competing pressures of how land across the UK is used and what our future landscape could look like.
