Manchester Science Festival

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 exploring our changing climate and ideas for a better world.

You can 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.
