Scott Donaldson at Creative Scotland wanted ecoartscotland to highlight this opportunity to hear Tim Flannery (mammalogist, palaeontologist, environmentalist and global warming activist) speak:
6pm Wednesday 4th April, Royal Society of Edinburgh.
Tim Flannery is one of Australiaâ€™s leading thinkers and writers. As a scientist, explorer and conservationist his achievements are many. Amongst them are the discovery of over thirty new species of mammal, being honoured Australian of the Year in 2007, co-founding and chairing the Copenhagen Climate Council, and selling over a million copies of his book The Weather Makers, one of the most influential texts in our understanding of global warming.
Donâ€™t miss this opportunity to hear Tim speak about his extensive work.
The event is jointly presented by the Royal Society of Edinburgh, the Royal Commonwealth Societyâ€™s Oxygen Programme and Creative Scotlandâ€™s Creative Futures programme.
