The University of Exeter is delighted to support the TedxExeter initiative and promote sustainability in Devon and Cornwall. The university is committed to the principles and practice of environmental sustainability in its activities throughout the institution. Opening in 2012 will be the Environment and Sustainability Institute (ESI) based at the University of Exeter’s Cornwall campus. This will be an interdisciplinary centre leading cutting-edge research into the consequences of environmental change and mitigation and management of its effects. The investment in this centre demonstrates the University’s long term commitment to sustainability. Please visit www.exeter.ac.uk for further information.



At Egremont we help our clients turn good ideas into action. A key feature of our work is to help organisations understand the accelerating pace of change in the world today and what the implications are for the next decade. So, for us, the key question is ‘how quickly can business become sustainable’ not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because commercial economic models will force no other choice. This is why we are delighted to be supporting and sponsoring a hotbed of ideas at TEDxExeter.
