Podcast: COP26 reflections – Was the UK a good or bad host?

Posted on: 30 November, 2021

With the dust settling on COP26,  we are reflecting on the event and one of the questions posed in the media was whether the UK was the right choice of host. We got our building surveying programme leader, James Ritson, and CertHE programme leader, Hazel Lobo, to debate as to whether the UK was a good or bad host.
