    Description

    We are excited to be able to announce the forthcoming ISSP Public Lecture on 31st of May, 2013, 2pm-4pm. In collaboration with the European Environmental Agency (EEA), we are proud to present Professor Philippe Grandjean (University of Southern Denmark & Harvard University), author of the newly published book “Only One Chance”, as key speaker at the forthcoming ISSP public lecture. Prof. Grandjean’s worldwide research covers extensive studies of how environmental polution impairs brain development and he is a frontrunner within his field. Professor Jacqueline McGlade, Executive Director EEA will open the event with a short talk on recent findings. This year, the EEA finished the 800-page monograph on ‘Late Lessons of Early Warnings: Science, Precaution, Innovation’. Dr. McGlade reviews the report, the initial responses to it, and her hopes for socially responsible decision-making closely linked to scientific documentation. The event, as well as the public disussion, will be moderated by Lasse Marker known from Danish Broadcasting Corporation’s “Kulturknuserne” and Raeson’s 5 o’clock events.
