Free talk on the problems of providing food & energy in a world with a growing population

On Thursday 22nd January from 7pm to 9pm we’ll be hosting a talk at Fearon Hall by Grantley Lycett, a lecturer and researcher in Plant Molecular Biology at the University of Nottingham’s Sutton Bonington campus.  The title of the talk is:

“Gas and walls: approaches to alleviate problems of food and energy security. ”

In the talk Grantley will outline some of the issues we face in providing sufficient energy and food resources in a world with a growing population.  He’ll also present some of the work that he and his colleagues at Sutton Bonington have done to help address these issues.

The talk is free, and Grantley will take part in a discussion about the issues raised after the talk itself.  Refreshments available to purchase from the cafe in Fearon Hall.

There is some limited car parking near Fearon Hall, but it may be easier for people arriving by car to park in the Rushes car park, which is only 5 minutes walk away from Fearon Hall.
