Do you want to be interviewed about sustainable development?

Carlos Shanka, a Student Fellow at BILT, is currently running a mini-series of interviews with staff and students at the University of Bristol. He wants to highlight and share good and improvable practices, opinions, and those efforts that people are putting towards embedding sustainable development in the curriculum.

He will be delighted to hear from academics interested in participating in a short interview (online or in-person) before the end of the term. Please contact him if you would like to participate or learn more: https://www.linkedin.com/in/carlosshanka/ or gm19420@bristol.ac.uk
