Our Environmental Science Series explores topics that affect everyday Victorians.

Guest speakers provide insights into different environmental issues. The free talks focus on science and how it is, or can be, used to reduce the impact of these issues.  

We will be launching the 2021 series on Monday 29 March, with a panel of speakers on the topic of improving water quality in urban areas. The discussion will focus on changing the public perception of addressing the impact of stormwater on beaches, cities and across our communities. Stormwater management, sustainable water practice and protecting the environment will also feature as part of this session.

Further topics for discussion in the 2021 series include; climate change and environmental public health; microplastics; and emerging contaminants (pharmaceuticals).
