Join us for a very special one-off event in collaboration with the Festival of Nature 2024, for the latest in our Bristol Distinguished Address Series. BBC Group's Director of Sustainability, Danielle Mulder, will be in conversation with UWE Bristol’s Professor of Education for Sustainable Development, Georgina Gough, about the BBC’s commitment to the environment, becoming Net Zero and giving back more to the planet than they take out.

This event is part of Festival of Nature 2024, the UK's largest free celebration of the natural world.
