Upcoming events

It’s the British Science Week – although primarily aimed at young people, anyone can take part in events thinking about and investigating the changes happening in the world around us; from seasons and climate, to materials and energy. In York this Saturday 18th March you can try to see “Amazing Askham Bogs through the eyes of experts” or find out more about the impacts of air pollution and what you can do about it. You can even become a citizen scientist yourself by joining the PenguinWatch 2.0 run by Zooniverse. While talking science we also recommend watching the Cambridge Climate Lecture Series 2017, especially lecture 3 by Kevin Anderson who is very good at explaining how scary climate change is but also how we can address it – if we all act now or very soon.

You will find more tips of the week on this page.
