DEI Online Seminar Series: Evidence Based Policy Change
This webinar is free and open to all. Please register via EventBrite
This webinar is focused on how to effect policy change and how to use research evidence to engage with Parliament, Government and Policy makers.
Examples of real-life policy impact in Energy and Environment areas will be used. You will hear directly from people working in and with Parliament about opportunities to feed your evidence and research into policy processes and ways to enhance this process.
You will also hear direct experiences of trying to make policy change happen from a former MP and a Durham University researcher: Helen Goodman will tell us about her efforts, as MP for Bishop Auckland, to raise the profile of Geothermal Energy in Parliament and Government Policy; and Professor Karen Johnson, from Durham University Engineering Department, will talk about her work with the Environmental Audit committee on soil health.
This event will be of interest to Researchers, PhD Students, Campaigning groups and Community Organisations.
Anyone who is interested in making policy-change happen and contributing evidence to policy processes.
