The Nottingham Roosevelt Scholarship is excited to announce that that they will be holding their second sustainability group meeting on Tuesday 10th August 2021 at 7pm UK time.  Professor Stanley Whittingham, a Nottingham born, American chemist who won the 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work in developing lithium-ion batteries will be a key speaker.

This is their second quarterly event.  Each event spotlights a specific sustainability topic related to the UN’s Sustainability Development Goals, and will include both an American and a Nottingham/shire perspective on the topic.  The next event will explore UN Sustainability Goal 7 – Affordable and Clean Energy.

Henry Franklin, Roosevelt Alumni and Research & Development Engineer at Cheesecake Energy, will be responsible for providing the Nottingham perspective.  Cheesecake Energy is an exciting University of Nottingham spin out providing cutting edge battery technology.

Professor Stanley Whittingham will provide an overview of his work developing lithium-ion batteries and how they have gone on to revolutionise transportation, EVs, and increasingly power networks to harness renewable energy across the world.

We will wrap up the session with a look at opportunities to get involved in sustainability initiatives in Nottingham. As a Nottingham/shire thought leader for sustainability we want to create a place to share knowledge, ideas and best practice about sustainability.

Meetings will be 1.5hrs in duration, open to the public and hosted on Zoom, with registration via Eventbrite.
