Green breakfast : Christmas climate special

This autumn series of Green Breakfasts will feature four leading international scientists from Oxford University, from a former Director of CERN and the Large Hadron Collider to the Chair of a Royal Society Future Earth group.

They will explore the opportunities and challenges of the so-called 'food-energy-water nexus' and its increasingly complex interaction with the planet's ecosystem.

What are Green Breakfasts?

Green Breakfasts are a series of talks held in the spring and autumn of each year. They are held at our offices and are intended to provide information and facilitate discussion in an informal environment for those interested or affected by the impact of climate change and climate variability.

We start at 7.30 am for breakfast and coffee, followed by speakers at 8.00 am and wrap up by 9.00 am.

This time we are doing something a little bit different — and I think the most exciting series so far.

The series is jointly organised by Blake Morgan and AgileOx, a new initiative being launched by Oxford University to promote interaction and enterprise between researchers and local partners around Oxfordshire's environmental futures.
