A public festival will take place on Lancaster University’s campus on the same day that author, journalist and environmental campaigner George Monbiot gives the Lancaster Environment Lecture.
A programme of on-campus, themed events, – ‘Regenesis, a Festival of Regeneration and Renewal’ – has been arranged for the day of the Lecture, and will include talks, food tastings, and yoga.
The 2023 Lancaster Environment Lecture will take place in the Margaret Fell Lecture Theatre on Wednesday 24 May at 7.00pm, organised by Lancaster’s Literature Festival Litfest, and Lancaster University.
George Monbiot’s thoroughly researched and compelling books and articles raise questions that need answering and, together with his videos, including Natural Climate Solutions for the Climate Crisis (with Greta Thunberg), have inspired campaigners throughout the world.
The title of his wide-ranging talk will be ‘Feeding the World without Devouring the Planet’. It will be introduced by Professor Andy Schofield, Vice-Chancellor of Lancaster University, who said: "Lancaster University is delighted to strengthen its partnership with Litfest in organising this year's Lancaster Environment Lecture, and to welcome such a prestigious guest as George Monbiot on campus. The aim of the Lancaster Environment Lecture series is to provide a research-informed platform for discussion on the most pressing issues around climate change and the environment."
