SCIENCE IN AN AGE OF CHANGE

March 30 @ 1:30 pm - 5:30 pm | Free

A really exciting afternoon exploring two cutting-edge issues in science in our fast-changing world. Leading academics will provide input on climate change and our response to it, and on the opportunities and challenges of artificial intelligence. The afternoon will conclude with a chance to consider the implications of these for all of us – no matter what faith or philosophy we may live by. There will be a book stall and refreshments.

Tickets are free but a donation of between £5-10 is invited towards the cost of the event. Please book your tickets using at Eventbrite

In partnership with Augustine United Church and Greyfriars Kirk
