In November, the Coutts Lecture in Economics was given by Professor Ian Bateman OBE.
Professor Bateman is Professor of Environmental Economics at Exeter University and Director of the Land, Environment, Economics and Policy Institute. He is a Member of the UK Defra Natural Capital Committee, reporting to the Chancellor of the Exchequer. His open lecture was entitled Climate Change – Fake News? and was of particular interest to boys studying Economics and Geography, although all were welcome to attend.
