UN World Development Information Day Seminar
The United Nations ‘World Development Information Day’ aimed to mobilise world public opinion to development problems and the need to strengthen international cooperation to solve them.
The Sustainability Science at Southampton (SSS) Strategic Research Group is at the leading edge of developing solutions to global development challenges.
To celebrate this important day, SSS is held an evening event which includes a series of talks on the latest developments in the University-led projects funded by the ‘Ecosystem Services for Poverty Alleviation (ESPA) programme, with an introduction to global challenges and the new curriculum innovation module.
