Title:

Transformational Nature – Unlocking the secrets of natural form, plant intelligence and the ageing process

Where:

Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew Richmond TW9 3AB

Start Date:

Tuesday 17th May

Description:

This inspirational seminar will deliver the vision, knowledge and wisdom of three great thinkers. Their brilliance lies in combining fastidious research with artistic sensibility: communicating from the frontiers of their disciplines.

 

Respectively, these scientists are challenging old paradigms. Collectively, by breaking the boundaries between science and art, they offer a powerful insight into natural processes that could change the way we understand, preserve and manage trees.
