The panel includes experts Sarah Dack from Public Health England & Ian Martin from the Environment Agency who will join Karen Johnson (Engineering) & Lynsay Blake (Biosciences) to discuss the links between soil and human health and how soil is the basis of both our health and wealth. Exploring both the positive & negative links between soil and human health, we will consider how by using wastes as resources and aligning with the circular economy, we could boost both soil health and human health.
Network-H2 is the EPSRC funded network to maximise the impact of UK-funded research and innovation. The Network will be organising conferences, seminars, workshops and funding calls in order to advance the knowledge and understanding of hydrogen fuelled transportation.
Social scientists Anna Krzywoszynska and Lena Dominelli will join physical scientists Wendy Stone and Karen Johnson and Sustainability educationalist Joanne Appleby from OASES to look at how to build terrariums. Terrariums are very fashionable at the moment but can also be used by scientists to study global biogeochemical cycles such as the carbon cycle. Effectively we can study soil’s circular economy in a jar.
