Event description

Description

Join us this October for our annual Galapagos Day event. This year we will be returning to the striking Royal Geographical Society, London and will be honouring one of our founder trustees Nigel Sitwell who sadly passed away earlier this year.

From the wonders of whale sharks to the perils of plastics, how do we inspire future conservationists to protect our blue planet? Join us for a unique event to explore the depths of the Galapagos Marine Reserve with Liz Bonnin, presenter of BBC Galapagos as she shares her adventures in the Islands and her work inspiring our next generation of scientists. In addition, find out how GCT is engaging the stewards of Galapagos, including the local community and the travel industry through inspiring sustainable living and tourism.

Finally, join us for an expert panel on marine plastics and the psychology of behaviour change as we discover if the Galapagos Marine Reserve could ever be plastic-free, and what we would need to achieve this from cutting-edge science to inspiring education and outreach.

In addition to the exciting talks, we will have the amazing winners of our 2017 Galapagos photography competition on display, as well as a photography exhibtion from Falmouth University. We hope you can join us on what promises to be an inspiring and insightful evening!

Physical raffle tickets will also be available on the night for a chance to win a 5-day cruise for two around Galapagos and £1000 each towards flights.

Each ticket will include a complimentary drink but we recommend that you eat before coming as there will only be snacks on sale behind the bar.
