Speaker information

Sunil Shastri, Marine Policy, University of Hull

The talk centers on three practical approaches that Sunil has adopted throughout the latter part of his career to deal with the contemporary environmental issues that confound us. The central message is that each one of us can be that agent of change and make a difference to the situation.

After briefly introducing the concepts of governance and the need for changes in its management, Sunil will introduce his seven pillars of environmental governance and discuss each one briefly. These form the basis of his international lecture circuit which he markets as a Master Class delivered in ‘3 minutes to 30 hours’ (and everything in between)! Most of us are slaves to or loyal to our own disciplines and so be it. The beauty here is that you could look at your pillar as the key or central pillar and the others as mere supports. The key message then is that each one of us can contribute to the strengthening of at least one pillar or indeed adopt one as their pet pillar.
