The Planet Under Pressure conference is kicking off in London.

CSIRO’s Mark Stafford-Smith is on the organising committee and other CSIRO scientists including Andrew Ash, Mark Lonsdale and others will be speaking.

There are a host of international speakers and scientists attending and you can find the list HERE.

According to the blurb for the conference, PUP is designed to “be a major opportunity to link global-change science in a two-way engagement with the wide range of other stakeholders working towards global sustainability”.

There has been a blog set up (not as witty and insightful as this one) and there will also be web streaming.

Simon Torok from CSIRO is over there and will be sending back some blogs during the event.
