Dr. Anjana Khatwa: The Missing: Embracing equitable engagement for science and nature. – Thu 10 Aug 2023

Dr. Anjana Khatwa: The Missing: Embracing equitable engagement for science and nature.

Thursday 10 August, 4:30pm-5:30pm, ONLINE

With Dr Anjana Khatwa

Imagine filling out a bingo card of famous TV presenters, authors and scientists who have contributed to our understanding of our natural world. David Attenbrorough – check. Chris Packham – check. Charles Darwin – check. All worthy, all notable but there is a significant part of society that is always missing from this list when I run this exercise in my work, people who have Black and Brown skin. This is not through a disinterest in nature for Black and Brown communities have enduring relationships with the natural environment that can be traced back for thousands of years. Could the missing faces be due to other factors? Join me to discover why this is and how diversity in nature and science matters not just for representation, but for the survival of our planet itself.

The talk will be available to watch on Facebook and YouTube.
