BBSRC Bioenergy Dialogue
Take part in a national conversation about bioenergy. BBSRC is running a public dialogue project and needs your help to run events. We have created a toolkit of resources to help you engage your local communities. We want to hear what hopes and concerns people have for bioenergy and we need you to get involved and run events this summer! This will help us have a broad range of public views and develop policies that respond to the hopes and concerns of the public. We can provide support to people wanting to run events. For more information see http://www.bbsrc.ac.uk/bioenergydialogue or email Marta Entradas at BBSRC
