Today is Earth Day, an annual international day to raise awareness and show support for environmental protection. This year is the 50th anniversary of the first Earth Day and the theme for 2020 is climate action.
To mark Earth Day, we’re making our recent Monday night lecture by Dr Tamsin Edwards ‘What fate for Antarctica’ free to view for one week until Wednesday 29 April. In her lecture Tamsin explores the impact that a warming world is having on Antarctica’s great ice sheets. For more from Tamsin, you can listen to her talk about the effect of COVID-19 on the environment via BBC Radio 4.
Watch ‘What fate for Antarctica’ now
Our full catalogue of Monday night lecture recordings is accessible to Fellows and members, but while our normal programme of events is disrupted, we will be making one of them free for everyone to access each week. From rewilding and polar exploration to digital world building, there’s bound to be something to pique your interest.
Keep an eye on our social media channels to see which lecture is going to be available next. Look out for the #GeographyAtHome hashtag for geographical resources and activities you can do at home.
