Speaker information

Dr Tim Chatterton, Institute for Sustainability, Health and Environment (ISHE, Tim has a background in both social and physical sciences. He has been working in the field of sustainability for fifteen years, primarily in air quality – but increasingly in the related areas of climate change, public health, transport, and the built environment. For much of this time, he has been based at the University of the West of England where he has worked very closely with Defra and the Devolved Administrations on the UK’s Local Air Quality Management process.

Tim recently spent 12 months on an RCUK Energy Programme social science policy fellowship in the Department of Energy and Climate Change looking at “Individual’s and Communities’ Energy Behaviour”. His presentation will provide a broad overview of some of the challenges that DECC is facing in addressing behaviour change, and how the Fellowship helped support the rapid development of capacity within the Department. Following a general discussion of the way that DECC is approaching climate change, Tim will highlight and discuss key areas for DECC policy where interaction with the public is becoming a major issue.
