One of the lecturers at the University informed me about a presentation he will be giving in June, and while i was having a look on the site i discovered some other free seminars that may be of interest to Dorset Energized subscribers.

The two that stick out for me are:

Why access to environmental justice matters
to be given by Tilak Ginige on Wednesday 12 June

“Recent years have seen the emergence of a widespread consensus that ‘public participation’ is a crucial element for an effective and democratically legitimate environmental decision-making process. This workshop we will explore possible reasons for this development, and some of the difficulties that may arise.”


Public engagement in renewable energy and technology issues
to be given by Zulfiqar Khan and Mark Hadfield on Thursday 13 June 2013, 6pm-8pm

“This event provides the opportunity for those interested in renewable energy to discuss and debate the pros and cons of new technologies. The event will include a number of brief presentations, followed by discussion and debate of each.”

Both of these events are free and are suitable for the involvement of the general public and are part of the University’s Festival of Learning.
