10 billion eccentrics...

Departmental meeting today - as always some great speakers. We had a talk on our progress and  success in the Green Impact Agenda, a look at how the development team are putting in place techniques to schedule, prioritise and manage work, and the University's "Achieve More" programme. We were also very lucky to have our new PVC for Learning and Teaching talk to us about a number of things including the upcoming TEF - Teaching Excellence Framework.

This year's Achive More Challenge for our second year students is entitle 10bn - based on the theory that in their lifetime, the population of the world will reach 10bn. What will that mean? What threats, challenges and opportunities will it brin? take a look at what some of our students think here:

Oh, and if you're wondering about the title of this post. One of the UKs best folk singer/songwriters Pete Morton is a great friend of mine, and he wrote a song called Six Billion Eccentrics. I intended to call this post 10bn, but that's not what came out ;-)
