News of the latest Workers’ Educational Association (WEA) lecture coming up in Llanelli next week.
The November lecture is on Thursday, November 16, at 7 for 7.30pm in the Selwyn Samuel Centre.
The lecture will be on Climate Change and Human Sustainability and will be given by Roger Middleton, Chartered Engineer and Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, MPhil in Engineering for Sustainable Development.
WEA Llanelli spokesman Ruth Price said: “This is a most pertinent subject for our times.
“Roger Middleton brings experience from water and wastewater, production automation, petro-chemical and marine industries to bear on engineering problems with a philosophy of developing technical excellence as a foundation for progress. He is a Chartered Engineer and Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.
“In 2003/4 Roger gained an MPhil in Engineering for Sustainable Development at Cambridge University and focused on environmental engineering and renewable energy culminating in a project to re-equip the Towy pumping station at Nantgaredig.
“Now retired, he works with the Energy, Environment and Sustainability Group of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers to foster long term plans to mitigate and adapt to climate change.
“We hope to see everyone next Thursday. This will be our last lecture until the New Year, so we hope everyone has a pleasant festive season.
“Please see our lectures and classes for more details. As ever, our lectures are free for everyone to attend – why not ask a friend or family member to come along? We are very grateful if you share this information on any social media platforms you use, as well.”
