The SustainaWHAT? Gatherings – embedding Education for Sustainable Development in PGR education and researcher development

Rosalind Beaumont, Senior Lecturer in School X discusses how Newcastle PGR students had the opportunity to come together via a cross-faculty series of events during COP26 in November 2021, to explore and discuss their research through the lens of sustainable development.
