Debate: Innovation, sustainability, development – a manifesto for Brighton & Hove Dates: 15 March 2010

Time: 17.30 - 19.30

Location: Jubilee Library, Jubilee St, Brighton BN1 1GE

Chair: Professor Bob Allison, Pro-Vice Chancellor (Research), University of Sussex

This “Question Time”-style debate, with a panel drawn from Brighton and Hove’s political parties, asks how we can use science, technology and innovation to make a positive difference to people’s lives, here and in the developing world.

In the past 40 years, we have witnessed unprecedented advances in science and technology. But are we any closer to solving the problems of inequality and environmental sustainability? As part of the STEPS Centre’s international project, 'Innovation, Sustainability, Development: A New Manifesto', the debate invites you to ask the big questions on how our city can help to shape the future.

How can we create a more sustainable city? What impact does our city have on the developing world? What can scientists, innovators and citizens do?

This event is part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science.
