Edinburgh Science Festival, scheduled for 4–19 April 2020, was cancelled due to the global spread of COVID-19.
Although the event won’t go ahead as planned we will be launching a digital #EdSciFest. Keep your eyes peeled for online entertainment, curated articles, and downloadable resources covering all the Science Festival favourites throughout the month of April.

We share our planet with almost eight billion people and the collective environmental challenges we face have never been greater or more complex. Increasing demands for food, water, energy and infrastructure are pushing nature to its limits, and the impacts of the climate crisis we are facing are increasingly more apparent. Life on Earth is a wonderful yet fragile thing.
With our climate in crisis and our world in turmoil, buffeted by false news and media manipulation, it has never been more important to shine a spotlight on the threats, challenges and opportunities that face planet Earth – to champion reasoned and rational though and the value of evidence, and to help equip the public and our policy makers with information that helps them make informed decisions about the things that matter most.
Earth has a breathable atmosphere; a rare and precious resource, but one we continue to pollute.
Learn about how we harness the power of the wind and about fuel alternatives that will help preserve the purity of the air we breathe.
