PSA Environment will be hosting a drinks reception and meal at the Hop Poles pub, just five minutes’ walk from the Hilton. We will be arriving at 6pm for drinks, and have reserved tables for food at 7pm. Although the deadline for saving a seat at the meal has now passed, if you are interested in attending, please get in touch. We already have over 20 confirmed environmental politics specialists attending, so it should be a good one!

We’ll also be holding our AGM from 12.30-1.30 on Tuesday 22nd March in the Gloucester Room.

This year, we are pleased to have filled all six of our allocated panels at the PSA Conference, while three further environmental politics panels have been organised.
