Our students engage with our policy makers in a number of ways:
- PolicyBristol blog post “Environments without Borders”
- Input into a wider project- the Teat’s Hill renovation project. This project will renovate a coastal site in Plymouth between 2017 and 2018 and will assess the impacts of this on the local community in Plymouth.
- Member of the committee of UKPN (UK Polar Network) and the IPECS (International Penguin Early Career Scientists group)
- UK workshop on microplastics in freshwaters – Environment Agency
- Contribution to a policy guide published by the British Ecological Society – ‘How can science influence Parliament?’
- Marine anthropogenic litter paper cited in ‘The environmental impacts of marine litter’ by the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) UK government https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-environmental-impacts-of-marine-litter
- Involvement in a small-group discussion workshop and brainstorming at the Royal Society on post-Brexit agri-environmental policy with DEFRA civil servants and policy-makers.
