Science for Sustainability

Date:   13th - 18th November 2017

Location:   Cork, Ireland

We all want to live guilt free, but making big lifestyle changes can be difficult. Sustainability should be about creating opportunities, not about limiting possibilities. Four researchers from University College Cork, Ireland are attempting to use the powers of science and nature to enable us to ferment our way to foreign holidays, to use giant metal stomachs to power our buses, to recycle dairy waste into plastic, and use the slime from deep-sea creatures to make our stuff. All of this while ensuring that climate change won’t alter the flavour of your favourite Merlot and peak oil won’t prevent you from buying the latest smart phone!
