NIGEL WINSER: UNDERSTANDING NATURE – THE KEY TO OUR FUTURE

Date:
26 October 2016
Time: 6:00pm to 7:00pm
Location: Fyvie Hall, Regent Campus, 309 Regent Street, London W1B 2HW – View map

Westminster Talks is proud to begin the 2016–17 series with a talk by Nigel Winser.

Nature is complex. We will never truly understand how it works. But to ensure leaders of the developed and developing world have the knowledge to make the right decisions on farming, conservation, water, climate change, plastic and energy, field scientists need to be smarter at collecting and sharing data about our ecosystems, now changing faster than ever before. Westminster trained Life Scientist Nigel Winser will share his experiences as a manager of geographical research programmes, with suggestions for students and future leaders wishing to make a contribution to the study of the natural world. This will include an introduction to those organisations and communities currently working hard to ensure a safe, sustainable planet. The goal is a higher level of environmental consciousness with voting citizens of the world to reverse the global trends of habitat loss, a warming world and too much plastic in the oceans.

Nigel Winser

Born in Kenya, early encounters with the natural world led to a career in conservation as a field scientist. Nigel read Life Sciences at the Polytechnic of Central London (now the University of Westminster) where he undertook biological field surveys in the Sahara, West Ethiopia, and Kenya.

He then worked at the Royal Geographical Society on field science related activities for 29 years, joining as a volunteer studying the forests of Sarawak and going on to become its Deputy Director. He helped establish the society’s Expedition Advisory Centre to encourage and fund young scientists to study the natural world – and was then selected to develop the Society’s geographical research programmes in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and the Indian Ocean. As Head of the Expeditions and Fieldwork division, Nigel was involved in developing standards and training for safe fieldwork and promoting the value of outdoor learning.

In 2005 he joined the ‘citizen science’ NGO Earthwatch and for 10 years led the European office. He was later appointed Executive Vice President of Earthwatch International, with a global programme of over 50 international projects worldwide, focussing on biodiversity and climate change studies and working closely with volunteers, business leaders and pioneering international scientists.

Currently Nigel is working as a consultant and volunteer with local field scientists on conservation projects in Sarawak and the Sultanate of Oman and developing ecotourism activities with the Laikipia Maasai Il Ngwesi Group Ranch Conservancy in North Kenya.

REQUEST FOR EXCEPTIONAL LATE CHANGES TO MODULE REGISTRATION

Posted on: 13 September 2016

No Comments »
Filed under: Uncategorized

Dear Undergraduate Students

 

Requests for exceptional late changes to modules are for students who have serious unforeseen and unpreventable circumstances that require a timetable change. The process should only be used if you experience significant, unforeseen changes to your domestic life, circumstances over which you had no control, which prompt a need to make a module and/or timetable change.  As the Registry has already offered an opportunity to all students to make changes following the results published in June, having just missed the deadline or just wanting to change late will not be a suitable reason for submission of a claim, even if supported by evidence, or academic endorsement.

 

The form is now available via the below link, and must be signed by your course leader or his/her nominees before your student record will be updated. Approval is conditional upon there being no timetabling clashes, pre/co-requisite requirements being satisfied, and a place being available in the module. Any change to the total credit value of your student programme may alter your fee liability.

 

Please ensure that a valid reason is included on your form, and supporting documentation attached where appropriate.

 

The deadline for receipt of this form is 30 September 2016

Filed under: Uncategorized

If you finished a course between 1 August and 31 December 2015 you will be contacted as part of the latest annual Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey.

 

The survey will ask you about your employment and further study activities, such as the type of work you are doing, who you work for or where you are studying.

 

We would very much appreciate it if you can find the time to take part. The information you provide is anonymous and confidential.

 

You can complete the survey online or over the phone, and the final deadline for taking part is 24 June 2016. You should have already received an email with the subject line ‘Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey 2015/16’ containing a unique link to the online survey. If we do not hear from you then we will contact you by telephone.

 

DLHE results are very useful for advising our current students about the career and study opportunities that might be available to them. Nationally, results from the DLHE survey are used in higher education league table rankings and to generate the employability information stored on the Unistats website at http://unistats.direct.gov.uk/

 

You can find out more about the DLHE survey, including details of what happens to the information you provide, here: http://www.westminster.ac.uk/study/current-students/your-studies/student-surveys/destinations-of-leavers-from-higher-education-survey

 

If you have any questions about the DLHE survey, please contact Wayne Clark at W.Clark@westminster.ac.uk or Bhavesh Halai at B.Halai@westminster.ac.uk in Corporate Planning and Performance at the University of Westminster.
