The aim of the United Nations day ‘World Development Information Day' is to mobilise world public opinion to development problems and the need to strengthen international cooperation to solve them. Our Sustainability Science at Southampton (SSS) Strategic Research Group is at the leading edge of developing solutions to global development challenges.

To celebrate this important day, SSS is holding an evening event which includes a series of talks on the latest developments in the University-led projects funded by the ‘Ecosystem Services for Poverty Alleviation (ESPA) programme, with an introduction to global challenges and the new curriculum innovation module. The event is sponsored by the local Southampton WaterAid group and will include information about how you can get involved in local campaigns events.
