    Dr John Rowan of the School of the Environment will talk about his work as director of CECHR, the Centre for Environmental Change and Human Resilience, a partnership between the University of Dundee and the Scottish Crop Research Institute. CECHR aims to tackle some of big issues facing the planet today arising from rising populations, natural resource depletion, loss of biodiversity, increasingly technology-dependent economies and pollution leading to climate change. It brings together science and technology, the arts and social sciences and health professions to explore interdisciplinary solutions to these complex problems.
