RSE/SCRR Peter Wilson Event

In light of the Scottish and UK Governments’ advice around COVID-19, we are hosting a few of our events online, including this annual RSE/SCRR (Scottish Consortium for Rural Research) Peter Wilson event.

There is still time to register. Simply click on this link and follow the on screen instructions. Those registered will be able to view the discussion and participate in the live Q&A. The discussion will also be recorded and published on the RSE YouTube channel after the event.

About the event:

In order to produce scientifically-sound and socially-just solutions, our responses to global climate change must encompass multi-disciplinary evidence from natural science, social science, arts, humanities, and traditional and local knowledge. With so many ways of knowing the world at play, young scientists and civilians are at the forefront of synthesising and communicating these wide-ranging forms of evidence. This event brings together young speakers from diverse backgrounds to inspire us with discussion on how we can share and work with evidence in rural climate change responses.
