CANCELLED The Carbon Walk (EISF)

Venue: Our Dynamic Earth


CANCELLED

**Coronavirus/COVID:19**

The Edinburgh Science Festival web page has more details.

This year's theme is the elements and their role in the challenges facing society, chiefly climate change. Join artist and activist Dr Romain Viguier on a Carbon Walk. Beginning at Our Dynamic Earth, you'll collect a bag weighing 5kg, the equivalent of 3.5 hours of the average carbon footprint in the UK.

Bags will be carried to the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation, where they will form part of a community art installation representing one tonne of carbon dioxide. Just like walking – we must take one step at a time to turn our carbon-based economy around.

Please dress appropriately for this outdoor event including sensible footwear and waterproof clothing.

Presented by SCCS / the University of Edinburgh as part of the Edinburgh International Science Festival
