Inspire a Generation with Science Books: Their Future in their Hands

Inspire a Generation with Science Books: Their Future in their Hands

Global warming, plastic pollution and species extinction are hot topics but what do these scary terms mean to children? Can we inspire them to take an environmental interest early on? Join eco-science teacher Sarah Eames and authors Nicola Davies and Gill Lewis to discuss how science books for kids can connect them to nature, inspiring them to protect the planet. Presented in partnership with the Royal Society’s Young People’s Book Prize.

Part of our The Fragile Planet series of events.
