The Botanic Garden that Thought it Could Change the World


Join acclaimed writer and climate activist Sophie Cunningham (author of Melbourne and City of Trees) in conversation with Charlie Carroll, Manager Arboriculture, about the Gardens’ Landscape Succession Strategy and the international Climate Change Alliance of Botanic Gardens. Collaboration between botanic gardens across the globe is essential in understanding how plants will grow and survive in a warming climate. Sophie and Charlie will discuss how the Climate Change Alliance was formed right here in Melbourne, and how botanic gardens can harness their expertise to share and exchange skills and information on a global platform.

This event will be livestreamed – details to come. 

Presented by Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria as part of Inspiring Victoria’s ACCLIMATISE program for National Science Week, 14 – 22 August 2021.
