Scientists face the crowds in Hyde Park on June 14th.

ZSL Hyde Park June 14th

In a bid to cut out the middle man and answer some of science’s burning questions, the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) is gathering together the UK’s leading scientific brains to talk at Speakers’ Corner.

On Monday 14 June 2010, scientists will take to their soapboxes at the world’s most famous debating arena. They’ll be tackling three broad themes of Earth Evolution, Earth Challenges and Earth Solutions, but they’ll be expecting YOU to lead the debate.

Scientists at Speakers’ Corner will cut through the scientific jargon and give you the truth behind the headlines. So if you’re fed up of reading about ‘climategate’ and hearing that that the earth’s going to be swallowed up by a black hole created in Switzerland, join the debate to get the facts first-hand.

Science is all about asking questions – now it’s your turn!
