FoI Public Event: 2nd July 2021 FESTIVAL OF IDEAS Turning Disaster into Opportunity Professor Paul Aplin, Edge Hill University

Global health has taken centre stage over the past year – but what impact has the pandemic had on environmental health? In the final Festival of Ideas event, we’re looking ahead to the future to ask whether in the midst of disaster lies opportunity. Edge Hill experts will talk about their latest research and will finish the session with a quiz to test your environmental know-how.


To kick off this year’s Festival of Ideas, Edge Hill is bringing you its own TED Talk inspired spin-off ‘Edge Talks’. The series of punchy 10-minute talks will be delivered by a variety of inspirational speakers on a topic of their choice under the theme of Renewal.
