Public Lecture Series

Inaugural Professorial Lecture by Professor David Skydmore

'The Coils of the Spring Resilience and Inspirations from Ecosystems'

Wednesday 11 October 2017, 6pm, Catrin Finch Centre

Survival, whether of nature or businesses, depends on resilience. Resilience in the growth and form of trees gives us messages about how we can manage human systems. Yet, ecosystems are complex and there are horizons still to explore. Investigating resilience in soundscapes starts a new journey into understanding this complexity and environmental impacts.

Free Event.  Tickets can be otained through eventbrite
