The many occupations of Icelandic Environmentalist Andri Snaer Magnason

The Institute for Sustainable Futures will be hosting Icelandic Environmentalist Andri Snaer Magnason for a fascinating lecture on Wednesday 26th September from 6pm-7pm.

This follows on from a lunchtime seminar that take place from 12pm-1pm in the Salvin Room at Keele Hall.  Details of the seminer can be found on the Green Keele website here.

The Many Occupations of Icelandic Environmentalist Andri Snær Magnason will outline Andri's journey as a novelist, poet, film producer, actor and reknowned environmental activist. Andri will discuss politics and anti-politics, contemporary literature and historic folklore, poetry, environmental activism, and climate change.

In 2016, Andri ran for President of Iceland and came in third place. Andri's book, Dreamland, 'details the destruction of our planet in following the heavy industrial trail of carnage involved in smelting aluminium - questioning the relationships that are involved, the hiding of truth for gain, for expediency'. Dreamland has also been made into a feature-length documentary, whilst Andri's children's book, The Story of the Blue Planet, has been adapted for the stage.

This event is open to the public and is free of charge with a drinks reception from 5.30pm in the Great Hall.

Pre-booking is required for catering purposes.  Please visit the Green Keeele website to register for your free tickets.
