The world view provided by Gaia science shows us how the planet really works and where we as a species fit in. The insights it gives us are fundamental in assessing the impact of human activity on the natural world, and particularly relevant for an understanding of the issues of sustainability and climate change. Gaia's Company explores the cultural implications of the Gaia world view in a practical and entertaining way, through performance, interactive workshops and educational events.
I have worked in the conservation sector as a volunteer and professionally for most of my life. I have a PhD from University of Oxford on "Biodiversity Indicators and Conservation Priorities" as well as MSc from Birkbeck College and Imperial College. I have spent extensive periods of time in the field carrying out research in the tropics.
Bright Club Manchester is the comedy club where researchers, from all fields and backgrounds, take to the stage to perform short stand-up comedy routines about their work. Why? Because it’s fun, interesting, and genuinely useful. Comedy and research have a lot in common. Most of our performers have no experience of doing stand-up comedy, or haven’t even considered it before, but that does not matter. We provide training and support and a transformation occurs. http://brightclubmcr.org.uk/

Currently in my second year reading Zoology at the University of Nottingham. I partake in numerous extracurricular activities alongside my academics including the student television station, NSTV, where I have immersed myself in television production working alongside others to produce high-quality footage suited to the students of Nottingham. Inspired by the work of Sir David Attenborough, communicating the world of science through the medium of television and film is a passion of mine.
