Our climate is changing, and oil reserves are running low - we have a big problem, which isn't going away any time soon. Could bioenergy be part of the solution?
Maybe - but bioenergy raises its own concerns. For instance, with rising food prices, should we be using our farm land to grow energy crops? And what could be the impact on biodiversity, farmers and the economy?
Join leading researchers and ethicists for an interactive session to discuss the future of bioenergy. What will the sustainable lifestyle of 2030 look like, and how can we steer bioenergy research today to reach that goal?
Come and join in this evening of lively discussion.
This event is hosted by Dr Marta Entradas of the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC). The BBSRC is interested in understanding your views, concerns and aspirations for the future of bioenergy so we can feed these into our strategy and policies around bioenergy.
