Get down to ECCI on Saturday 4 April for a day of events for Edinburgh Science Festival, as we countdown to the vital talks at The United Nations Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow in November.
Join us for Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas on the Climate Crisis as some of our brightest and bravest climate change thinkers let their most dangerous ideas loose on the public.
The Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas will give you the opportunity to engage with cutting-edge climate knowledge in the entertaining way you've been waiting for. Questions and challenges are actively encouraged and there'll be a liberal sprinkle of entertainment from MC and comedian Susan Morrison.
While you’re in the building look out for Biopolis: an exhibition exploring the city as a living system, produced by students from Edinburgh College of Arts’ MFA Art Space Nature programme and at 16:00 join a free screening of experimental short films exploring the topic.
Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas on the Climate Crisis is presented by the Beltane Public Engagement Network and the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation for Edinburgh Science Festival. Embracing the origins and roots of what we do and don’t know, the 2020 Edinburgh Science Festival explores Elementary. Enjoy exciting, engaging and educational activities for families and debates, workshops, nights out, and food and drink tastings for adults.
Part of ECCI's series of events leading up to The United Nations Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow in November - an opportunity to put the world back on track to meeting the Paris Climate Goals and so keep global temperature increase to well below 2 degrees Celsius.
