Introducing 'Shakespeare & Saving the Planet'

December's Research Conversation

How might we start to use Shakespeare to change hearts and minds about sustainability?

Join us every month for our free online Research Conversations. Taking place on Zoom on the second Wednesday of every month, our Research Conversations provide you with the opportunity to attend free, online live sessions and listen to people who are engaged in Shakespeare-related research.

On 8 December we meet with climate expert Solitaire Townsend and theatre practitioner Roz Symon to hear two complementary perspectives on how close readings of Shakespeare might inspire us to develop, change or deepen our approaches to climate change.

Led by Solitaire Townsend, Co-founder and Chief Solutionist at Futerra, and Roz Symon, The Shakespeare Institute, University of Birmingham.

This marks the first in a new series of Research Conversations through December, January, February and March, as part of our 'Sustainable Shakespeare' programme of events and talks.

The event begins with a thirty minute presentation and will be followed by an open discussion. Please note this is an online event held on Zoom.


All of our Research Conversations are free, but if you are in the position where you are able to support us with a donation, no matter large or small, we would be incredibly grateful. As the independent charity dedicated to sharing Shakespeare's work, life and times with the world, we rely on the support of visitors, event attendees, donors and Friends for 98% of our income to help conserve the priceless Shakespearian heritage in our care. Thank you for your support.
