Manchester Science Festival took place digitally this year between Friday 12 – Sunday 21 February. It featured a programme packed full of free online talks, exhibitions, debates and activities that explored our changing climate and ideas for a better world.
Although the live events have now finished, there’s still plenty to explore, including the Climate Superheroes online exhibition. You can also rewatch the live talks and hear from scientists and experts at the forefront of the fight against climate change, listen to local voices making a difference in our communities and discover practical ways you can help to protect the natural world.
It's our aspiration to host further socially distanced, climate-themed activities when the museum’s doors reopen later this year. Sign up to our newsletter to be the first to find out more.
