Professor Ed Hawkins is famous for his beautiful animations of climate data, giving us a clear picture of what is happening. As part of British Science Week, Ed will be joining us in at the Sunday Assembly to help us visualize that changes that are happening to our planet.
Ed is a climate scientist at the University of Reading who has a passion for communicating visually about how the climate has changed. His climate spiral Visualisation was even used in the Rio Olympics opening ceremony. He leads the highly successful Weather Rescue citizen science project, which has engaged thousands of volunteers to digitise lost weather observations and improve our understanding of past weather. Ed was also an author of the most recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, and you can find him on twitter (@ed_hawkins).
Sunday Assembly Reading is free to attend and runs entirely on donations.
The Sunday Assembly is a secular congregation that celebrates life, meeting once a month at The Reading Irish Centre. Members of Sunday Assembly believe in Living Better, Helping Often and Wondering More, for no other reason than to make the most of the one life we know we have.
The Sunday Assembly welcomes all, of all ages and of all backgrounds.
The Assembly is at The Reading and District Irish Centre, Chatham Street. Doors open at 10:30 am with the Assembly starting at 11. The best way to meet new people is to come early.
