Professor Margaret Bates speaks at the International Conference on the Unity of the Sciences


Last month Professor Margaret Bates went to Seoul, South Korea - not for the Winter Olympics, but for the International Conference on the Unity of the Sciences.

Margaret says: The audience came from all over the world and included researchers and government ministers. There were two Nobel Prize winners amongst the presenters which was somewhat daunting. My presentation focussed on the role of wastes management in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and consisted mainly of pictures which enabled me to talk about whatever the fancy took me.

We also had a specially arranged performance from the “Little Angels”, who have performed in front of film stars and world leaders.
