AMplify: Australian innovations for tackling climate change
Listen to Kim McKay AO, AM Director & CEO and Professor Tim Flannery in conversation about the brightest inventions and approaches to reducing emissions and caring for environment. They introduce events on 3 June 2021 in advance of World Environment Day: the inaugural Talbot Oration to be delivered by Professor Flannery on The Climate Cure, and the opening of Spark, the Australian Museum’s new climate change solutions showcase.
As Professor Flannery says, the Australian Museum and its collections are “a grand mechanism for understanding climate change”.
AMplify is a podcast series featuring Director & CEO Kim McKay in conversation with scientists from the Australian Museum Research Institute (AMRI) and experts in First Nations and Pacific cultures. In this special edition of AMplify, Kim is joined by Prof. Flannery, Distinguished Visiting Fellow at the Australian Museum.
As the AM increases its commitment to raise awareness and research around impacts of climate change, internationally acclaimed scientist, author, explorer and conservationist Professor Tim Flannery joined the museum as a Distinguished Visiting Fellow to focus on researching the impacts of climate change and raising awareness of the issues, especially impacts on biodiversity and our coastal environments.
