The theme of this ADM arose from the recent development and completion of a guide to engineering geology in glaciated and periglaciated terrains, undertaken by a working party of geologists and geographers under the auspices of the Geological Society and aimed at developing inter-disciplinary collaboration amongst those with expertise in Quaternary science. The meeting aims to bring together a broad range of academics from the earth sciences and geography and practising engineering geologists working in Quaternary cold climate landscapes in an attempt to communicate recent developments and professional practices across the various disciplines working in Quaternary science more generally. The hope is that this will enable the improved awareness of practices and knowledge across bodies of expertise and initiate future collaboration specifically between the QRA and the engineering geology community.

Following the launch of the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) Health in All Policies (HiAP) Training Manual in 2015, the challenge facing policy-makers and practitioners is how to build political will to address health inequalities and how to make intersectoral working succeed to improve health and wellbeing and tackle growing health inequalities.
