I will be taking part in the British Ecological Society Parliamentary Shadowing Scheme. I will shadowing Linda McAvan MEP and learning about EU environment policy.
Those of you who know me will know that I’m a) interested in how climate change affects the evolution and ecology of infectious disease, and b) that I’m a massive politics nerd. So it won’t surprise you that I’m particularly excited to learn about how environmental policy is formulated, negotiated and applied in the EU with an MEP with a special interest in climate change.
I shall keep you posted with details about my experience over in Brussels.
