National Environmental Crime Conference
UCL's inaugural NATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL CRIME CONFERENCE was held on
October 7th 2008 at the British Library, London and was supported by Bridging the Gaps, the Environment Agency and the Home Office.
Environmental crime and eco-security are issues on the agenda of national
and local governments. These emerging threats are a growing global problem
which have a direct impact on the environment.
The conference was a first step in reducing the threat that
eco-crime poses to national and local communities in the UK. The event brought together
academics, practitioners, industry, law enforcement and policy-makers to
explore a range of current and future eco-crime problems such as wildlife
crime, industrial pollution and illegal waste disposal. The participants began to explore remedial and preventative actions,
including the value of working across disciplines, for instance in combining crime
science, environmental engineering and systems engineering approaches.
Key Sessions included:
- DEFINING THE FIELD
- THE POLICING CHALLENGE
- TECHNOLOGICAL SOLUTIONS
- ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE
- EMERGING & FUTURE ECO-CRIMES
Read the report from Hervé Borrion and Michael Emes about the conference.
Bridging the Gaps Launch Event
The launch event for the bridging the gaps programme took place on the 25th of June.
The launch event for the bridging the gaps programme took place at 2.00pm on the 25th of June in the Sir Ambrose Fleming LT in the Roberts Building. It featured presentations introducing the programme, its aims and its place within UCL’s research strategy. The speakers were
- UCL Provost and President, Malcolm Grant
- The Vice-Provost for Research, David Price
- Sarah Bell, Principal Investigator for Bridging the Gaps
- Jonathon Porritt Programme Director for Forum for the Future
Malcolm Grant led the discussion following the speakers. This was followed by a drinks reception held in the Foyer of the Roberts Building.
Attendees of the launch event learnt about the programme, what it offers researchers, and how it fits into UCL’s research strategy. The reception gave the attendees the opportunity to meet the programme directors, and to network with other members of the UCL research community.
