"Running the planet. Living without costing the Earth from three perspectives"

Come join us for an evening of talks and discussion hosted by RSPB Chair, Kevin Cox. From South America (bare-foot) through temperate rainforests, chaco and the Amazon to Devon (wellied) amid ancient wild-flower pastures, supporting local wildlife-friendly producers. We will explore how we are all inter-connected and how our every-day choices can help conserve our planet and its extraordinary biodiversity.  

Three talks over the course of the evening :

Ecologist and Author, Katharine Lowrie, will be speaking about her world first run the length of South America for wildlife and wilderness, including the ecosystems she ran through and how we can help to sustain them. 

Organic Farmer and Environmentalist, Andy Bragg, discusses pasture-fed meat, mob grazing and his love of the land. 

Wild Meadow Naturalist, Farmer and Climate-change lead, Audrey Compton, explains ways we can choose food, furniture and clothing to support rather than exploit natural resources. 

Doors open at 7pm 

First talk starts at 7.30pm

Please purchase tickets on the door.

There will be time for questions at the end.

Refreshments available from Exeter Phoenix.

Signed and Dedicated copies of Katharine's books, 'Running South America with my Husband and other Animals' will be available (£19.99) and her children's book, 'Cyril's Big Adventure; A Real Nature Story with a Happy Ending' (£6.99).
