Bumper bill of back-to-back public lectures this Thursday
Okay, you might have to dash a bit to get to them all in time but you’ll find that they’re well worth the effort.
The Department of Geography starts the evening with their annual lecture at 4.15pm in Physics Lecture Theatre A. ‘Ecosystem Assessment: Evaluating Human-Environmental Relationships’ will be delivered by Professor Richard Aspinall of The Macaulay Land Use Research Institute. Professor Aspinall investigates sustainable land use and is part of the Scientific Steering Committee of the Global Land Project.
The Sports and Recreation Service’s Olympic Perspectives lectures end on a photo finish by asking how London 2012 will finally end up on our TV screens. The BBC’s Head of Sport, Barbara Slater, will talk about how she and her team are preparing for the unique challenge of broadcasting every hour of every sport in the world’s largest sporting event. ‘Sports Broadcasting – A Journey to London 2012’ starts at 5.30pm in Ken Edwards Lecture Theatre 3.
Finally, as the signs of spring start to show, the green-fingered out there might be looking for some inspiration. In which case, the Friends of the Garden (the Harold Martin Botanic Garden, that is) can provide with a talk by Sally Yerrington on organic gardening to accompany their Annual General Meeting. Non-members are welcome, just head to Ken Edwards Lecture Theatre 3 at 7.30pm – remember to pick up a membership form on your way!
