TALKS 2021/22

We are delighted to announce that we have a full series of talks lined up for the winter. Until the end of the year they will continue to be offered via Zoom but Covid and venue permitting we hope to hold some indoor meetings in 2022.

The first talk will take place via Zoom on:

Tuesday 5 October at 7.30 p.m. and is entitled:

Carbon and Rewilding

It will be presented by Neil Kitching and is particularly apt in the lead up to COP26 in Glasgow.

Neil is Energy and Water Specialist at Scottish Enterprise and will be speaking in a personal capacity.

He is a geographer, author and energy specialist and will present on the links between climate change and nature. In his book, Carbon Choices, he identifies the 10 building blocks that society needs to adopt to tackle the climate crises - such as sensible economics, taking a long term approach, innovation, education and the role of community. But most of these also apply to our nature and biodiversity crises. Neil will explore the links between carbon and nature and question our love affair with the typical highland scenery. Is rewilding the answer? Neil's talk will be illustrated with his photographs from Scotland and overseas and we hope will stimulate an interesting debate.

Zoom Link: TBA asap
