Sustainable futures: Bug grub, extinction and energy scarcity
Join the debate at Bournemouth University's Festival of Learning (9-15 June 2014)
Would you eat bugs? Are you alarmed by energy scarcity? Is the human race heading for extinction?
These are just some of the topics covered at Bournemouth University’s (BU) Festival of Learning 2014. There are 150 public, free events including interactive workshops, hands-on taster sessions, presentations and seminar sessions. Events are a great opportunity for you to join in with discussions and debate and take part in the research itself. There are a wide range of activities relating to sustainable futures and environmental change.Last year over 4,000 people came to the Festival of Learning to learn something new, hear about BU research and see how it can impact our everyday lives.The Festival allows professionals, students and members of the public to be part of university studies, research and learning, with the chance to also bring friends and family to pursue a personal interest or hobby and meet like-minded people during the seven days the Festival is running.
