The Super Year for Nature?

2021 has been dubbed the ‘super’ year for nature, but what does this mean for science policy in Scotland? 

This virtual two-part ‘Pie and a Pint‘ series hosted by the BES-SPG and CIEEM will aim to explore what ‘COP’ is, the effect it has on the science policy interface in Scotland and how it will be implemented in practice. 

In the first part of this series, we will explore the biodiversity and climate COPs (COP15 and COP26), how they tie together and what the Scottish parliament/governments plans are for them. 

The second part of this series (planned to take place in 2022) will explore the outcomes of the COPs and how they will be implemented in practice across different sectors in Scotland. 

This event is open to all but is specifically targeted at students and those at an early career stage.


Part one in this series will be hosted on Zoom on Tuesday 28 September 2021, 17:00-19:00 (BST). Tickets for this event are FREE.  

The deadline for registration is 17.00 (BST) on 24 September.
