Secure your front row seat at the Burntwood Lecture

The Burntwood Lecture returns on the 3rd of December as an online evening event. 

Professor Jim Skea, Co-Chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Working Group III for the 6th assessment cycle, and Professor of Sustainable Energy at Imperial College London, will deliver a short lecture exploring the coherence of scientific messaging and how this plays out in a policy world that is sensitive to both the loss of nature, and social and economic justice.

After his presentation, Professor Skea will be in conversation with Roger Harrabin, Energy and Environment Analyst at the BBC, to explore whether environmental action is effective, equitable and sufficiently supported by coherent scientific advice. 

Join the discussion
Following the lecture, you will be able to join in the debate and put your questions directly to Professor Skea and Roger Harrabin. The first 500 registrants will secure a front row seat enabling you to put your questions directly to both the speaker and chair and fully engage in the evening's debate. If you don't secure a front row seat do not worry, this event will be live streamed on our YouTube channel.
