#NoFly Tour (Auckland)

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

In the last two weeks of November, Shaun Hendy will travel around New Zealand by train, ferry and bus to deliver five public talks on how we can ‘fly less’.

Join Shaun Hendy and Eloise Gibson (chair) at the Ellen Melville Center for the first public talk and discussion of Shaun’s five-stop, national #NoFly tour.

All welcome, no RSVP necessary.
