Soil erosion and landslides are caused by weak soil, with significant impacts on the economy. It affects food production and can influence areas liable to flooding. Could we use green engineering techniques to improve soil stability?

Listen to Dr Ken Loades of The James Hutton Institute give a short talk on these issues, then have the chance to put your questions to him in the relaxed environment of Harbour Café. Doors open 6pm.

Free admission and no need to book.
