The History of Eco-Max.

Howard Liddell OBE was a co-founder of SEDA. When he died in 2013 he was working on a book, "Eco-Max”, about pioneers of ecological design and their legacy. In 2015 Howard’s widow, Sandy Halliday, gave SEDA's 1st Howard Liddell memorial lecture on this theme and in 2016 SEDA hosted the second event, focusing on the life of Rachel Carson. This year continues the Eco-Max theme.

The audience numbers are strictly limited and booking must be made in advance.
