Earth and Beyond: Communicating Science for our Environment 

This theme considers all aspects of environmental sciences: the evolution of planet Earth, the ongoing changes in our environment now, the ways in which we can build a sustainable future, and even the exploration of extraterrestrial environments. This research is crucial in not just answering complex questions about life on Earth as we know it, but in building a habitable future. This conference showcases the cutting-edge research happening within these fields, and explores the connections shared not just between these disciplines, but between environmental scientists and the wider public.

  • What? This conference brings together PhD students, supervisors, and researchers from our DTPs, along with external partners, to explore and celebrate all your fascinating research. We urge and encourage all of you to engage in this conference and connect with a growing network of early career researchers. 

  • Where? This year our conference is being held IN PERSON at the University of Surrey! There will be a virtual conference platform as well for those who are joining us online (Option not available for oral and poster presentations).

  • When? 7th – 8th September 2023: the conference is held over two days with an overnight stay and plenty of social activities to balance out our wonderful program of speakers.
