It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our friend and colleague Erik Willis. Erik had worked at the Stockholm Environment Institute at York from the early 1990s until the summer of 2017 as our graphic designer and publication manager. Erik will be remembered for his loyalty, kindness and generosity of spirit to all his friends and colleagues and will leave a large gap in the hearts of all who knew him.

It is also with great sadness that we report the death of our great friend and colleague Mike Ashmore. Mike was a Professor in the Environment (& Geography) Dept. and more recently enjoyed a flexible retirement working with colleagues in the Stockholm Environment Institute at York. Mike was a truly inspirational colleague, mentor and friend and will be very sadly missed by all who knew him.
