In his inaugural lecture, How society ought to engage with nature, science and technology, Advaith Siddharthan, Professor of Computer Science and Society, will explore how our engagement with the natural world impacts on our scientific understandings and worldviews, the consequences of modern culture's disassociation with nature, and how digital technologies could paradoxically help reconnect people with nature when embedded within a methodology of citizen science.
