Sir Mark Walport is the new Chief Science Adviser to the UK Government. He has a background in immunology and now turns his attentions to the most pressing issue we face as a global society: our climate. In this series of talks across the UK he discusses with public audiences what the science tells us, and asks what should we, as a developed nation, do in response?
Sir Mark will be joined by Prof Alice Roberts, Chair of Public Engagement in Science here at the University of Birmingham. Alice is a clinical anatomist and has presented a range of programmes on BBC2 including The Incredible Human Journey, Origins of Us, and Prehistoric Autopsy. Her latest series, Ice Age Giants, airs on BBC2 this spring.
This event has been made possible by the Association for Science and Discovery Centres (ASDC) working in partnership with the Government Office for Science.
