TEDxSoho: Palaeoclimatologist Liz Thomas added to the line-up!

TEDxSoho returns to the The Cambridge Theatre on 17th June for an evening of inspiring talks “All The World’s A Stage”. Guest speakers include comedians, political strategists, activists, journalists, stuntmen, futurists and innovators.

TEDxSoho celebrates the people and organisations who dare to dream AND have the strength, skill and resolve to take action, beat a new path and make ‘better’ a reality. Representing the people, work, creativity and culture behind London’s most colourful and infamous district, home to the UK’s performance, media and creative industries, TEDxSoho will consist of a carefully curated program of short inspirational talks up to 15 minutes in length. Set to bring to the stage innovators, leaders, mavericks, creatives and groundbreakers, from Soho and beyond, who have chosen to rewrite the rules, throw away the book and set their sights on a brighter future.

TEDxSoho takes place on 17th June at The Cambridge Theatre. Tickets are on sale now.

Liz Thomas Joins the Line-up

Liz is a palaeoclimatologist, who travels to the coldest and most remote parts of our planet to understand how our climate is changing. She is head of the ice core research group at the British Antarctica Survey, and has led several expeditions to Antarctica, the Arctic, and even to the most remote island in the world (Bouvet Island, South Atlantic). Liz’s research has captured the unmistakable imprint of human activity on the pristine Antarctic wilderness, including evidence of fly-ash particles (from distant power stations) and nuclear fallout (from 1960s bomb-testing). She recently returned from drilling ice cores through the Brunt Ice Shelf in Antarctica, to better understand the processes driving ice shelf collapse and the potential impact on sea level rise. Her next venture is leading a drilling expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula to study the role of the Southern Ocean in controlling the uptake and release of past atmospheric CO2.
