Venue information

Our Sustainable Health Symposium: Global Perspectives, will be hosted at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge.

Cambridge has been renowned as a centre of learning since the 13th century – and Anglia Ruskin University has been here since 1858 when Cambridge School of Art first opened its doors. Today, our friendly, bustling campus is a stone’s throw from the historic city centre with its vibrant cultural and social scene.

Home to the Global Sustainability Institute,  Anglia Ruskin University is committed to playing a key role in developing practical solutions to the sustainability challenges we all face, both locally and globally. We do this through research and education - bringing together the information needed to make decisions, with the people capable of taking action.



Our 2017 Symposium is taking place in historical and beautiful City of Cambridge; one of the most important and beautiful in the UK, famous throughout the world for its universities & colleges, academic excellence, and exciting history and culture.

Cambridge is compact, and easy to explore on foot or by bicycle. Or, of course, you can wander down to the River Cam and hire one of the city’s famous punts. It’s a glorious way to sightsee.

You’ll discover a network of medieval streets and passageways, college courts, gardens, bridges and churches. Sometimes there seem to be theatres, galleries, craft markets, cafés and tiny secondhand bookshops around every corner. With so much to see and do it can be hard to pick out the highlights, but you might like:

  • Taking a walking tour of Cambridge (or hiring a bike and exploring on two wheels)
  • Punting on the River Cam
  • Exploring the extensive collections of the Fitzwilliam Museum
  • Visiting the magnificent King’s College Chapel
  • Relaxing in open spaces such as the Botanic Gardens, Midsummer Common and Parker’s Piece
  • Admiring the eye-catching Corpus (or ‘Grasshopper’) Clock
