Dear All,
I'll be around, but as far as I can see there are no scientists speaking.
I've no idea what they will be talking about. This seems just another pre-Copenhagen
meeting.
Cheers
Phil

Dear all,
If they are looking for something visual and they are expecting people to be doing
things in labs rather than sitting at computers - I wonder if David Richardson's lab
might be appropriate - as we did for the David Cameron visit?

Dear Trevor, Phil and Jacqui

I've just been contacted by the EA about this. Very late notice, may not come to
anything, but potentially a very good opportunity. Could someone let me know if we
can make this happen.

Their specific requests are:
1. Will an expert/scientist be available for interview at the university on Monday
morning? If so, who is this and what would they say?
2. What filming opportunities will there be e.g. to film researchers at work in your
centre? Could you please let me know how these will appear on camera. (On the phone
they said they may want to film students being taught too...)
3. If you will be issuing any comment of your own off the back of the Environment
Agency's announcement.

I can sort out the photographs for them, but I don't have any footage. (Do you
Martyn?)

Thanks,

Simon

Hi Simon

Following my call, please find details of the Environment Agency's annual conference
and Lord Chris Smith's speech below.
environment 09, the Environment Agency's annual conference will take place on Monday
9th and Tuesday 10th November 2009 and will be the largest meeting of environmental
leaders in the UK in the run up to Copenhagen. There will be several key note
speeches from political and business leaders throughout the event. Please find more
information at [4]www.environment09.com and attached.
On Monday, Lord Chris Smith, Chairman of the Environment Agency will be making a key
speech on his vision for a "low carbon revolution within our lifetime".
This speech will set out the measures that Britain must take in the next 20 years to
achieve a dramatic reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. It will include a focus
on the need for "more scientists and more engineers" to develop technology for a low
carbon economy.
Lord Smith will be calling for a 'Climate Challenge Fund' to prioritise research on
combating climate change across a group of leading academic institutions.
Please note that this information is embargoed until Monday 9th November.

We will be issuing a press release to media under embargo for Monday 9th November.
We will be pitching the story to national print, online and broadcast media. Our
regional press officers will also be looking for regional angles on the story. I
will send you the final press release as soon as I have it.

We'd be interested in working with the University of East Anglia to offer filming
and interview opportunities to broadcast media in relation to your Climatic Research
Unit and Low Carbon Innovation Centre. This would be pitched to broadcast media
ahead of Monday.

Could you let me know if you'd be keen to work with us on this please? If you are
we'll need to know the following:
Will an expert/scientist be available for interview at the university on Monday
morning? If so, who is this and what would they say?
What filming opportunities will there be e.g. to film researchers at work in your
centre? Could you please let me know how these will appear on camera.
If you have any rushes/film/photographs of the centre that we can offer to media to
use as background footage/illustration.
If you will be issuing any comment of your own off the back of the Environment
Agency's announcement.
Also, could you please send me any useful information on climate research at the
university which might be useful in our sell in to the media.

Please call me on the number below if you have any questions.

Best Wishes

Jo
