World-renowned environmental conservationist Dr Jane Goodall shares her views on the future of our planet and how we should think about animals. The interview comes right after her talk at the British Council's Café Scientifique evening in Hong Kong yesterday.

The ' Drylands, Deserts and Desertification' (DDD) conference, organised by Ben Gurion University’s Blaustein Institute for Desert Research (BIDR) in Israel, with a panel discussion hosted by the British Council, takes place this week on 17-20 November. Vivian Futran Fuhrman, PhD candidate at Ben Gurion University, explains why desertification is a threat to us all.

How can we make complex scientific ideas more accessible? Dr Roberto Trotta tells us about his attempt to describe the universe using the most common 1,000 words of English and explains why science ultimately speaks to us through the language of mathematics. Roberto will be speaking at the English Language Council Lecture on Science and the English Language, live-streamed from London on 13 November.

As we celebrate World Science Day for Peace and Development today, Adam Murphy, Ireland's 2014 winner of science communication competition FameLab, looks at the benefits nanotechnology can bring to our lives.

Winner of FameLab 2013, PhD student Fergus McAuliffe, has had a busy year in science communication. He tells us about the opportunities that have come his way since winning the competition. You can see live presentations on science topics by other FameLab alumni at the Natural History Museum on 26 September 2014.
