The ECI experts

We are very excited that we have all our ECI experts lined up. We are dipping into three key areas of the work done at the ECI: Climate, food and water. You can read more about our experts below. Our students will be learning about the work done at the ECI, delving into the issues, preparing interview questions for our experts, and then summarising what they have learned in their own communication project. Still a couple of places remaining for any latecomers.
