Confronting Noise

The LSE Environment Network (LEESIN) and the Environmental Law Foundation (ELF) are jointly hosting a conference on noise pollution at the London School of Economics and Political Science on Wednesday 5 April.

Speakers will address the many aspects of this growing problem and its effect on health, work, sleep and leisure. They include audiologist Dr Deepak Prasher, environment and aviation lawyer Richard Buxton, acoustician Dr Nigel Cogger and Val Weedon, MBE, founder of the Noise Network. The conference will be opened by Lord Alexander of Weedon, patron of ELF. Derek Osborne, CBE, President of the National Society for Clean Air and the Environment will deliver the keynote address.

In June 1999, LEESIN organised a hugely-popular lecture with David Korten titled When Corporations Rule the World.

  • The Environmental Initiatives Network (LSEEIN) was set up during LSE's Centenary Year to promote the work of alumni committed to addressing the urgent environmental challenges facing modern society. The Network is envisaged to be a precursor to a more structured forum able to present credible and well-researched responses to the environmental crisis in the fields in which the LSE excels, particularly in economics and finance.
  • The Environmental Law Foundation (ELF) is an award winning charity providing legal and scientific advice to communities and individuals throughout the UK. ELF is working to ensure that the voices of communities and individuals who are trying to protect their environment are heard. ELF was established in 1992 and is the only independent charity working to provide access to environmental justice throughout the UK. 
  • The School's Alumni Relations programme was launched in 1990 as a means to maintain and strengthen relationships with former students and friends and to engage their active support. Today, the School is in contact with more than 58,000 alumni.
