Tim Flannery speaks in Edinburgh

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 Australia’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.

Don’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 Society’s Oxygen Programme and Creative Scotland’s Creative Futures programme.

  1. As an Australian creative environmentalist who highly regards ecoartscotland, I’d recommend taking the opportunity to attend the Tim Flannery evening – he definitely has experience working interdisciplinary and his passion, insight and humility is uplifting. In the tradition of the Shambhala Warrior, Tim Flannery has even entered the government grounds to weave his magic from inside the ruling quarters 😉
