What happens when a leading New Zealand scientist (and frequent traveller) rules out flying for a year?

Over two weeks in November, BWB Author Shaun Hendy will travel around New Zealand by train, ferry and bus to deliver five public talks, in connection with his recently published BWB Text, '#NoFly: Walking The Talk on Climate Change' – an honest account of one person’s attempt ‘to adapt’ in the face of growing climate anxiety.

Join Shaun Hendy and Sylvia Nissen (chair) at The Piano for the second public talk and discussion of Shaun’s five-stop, national #NoFly tour.

Thursday 21 November 6:00 pm–7:00 pm The Chamber The Piano Centre 156 Armagh Street Christchurch
