WE like to keep the Yes movement informed of events which, though not led by Yes groups, might still be of interest to activists and supporters of the cause of regaining Scotland’s independence.

One such event is being held by the Saltire Society’s Aberdeen and North East branch and it features one of Scotland’s top experts on the issues of climate change, Professor Becky Lunn.

She will be giving an online talk on Thursday, November 25, at 7.30pm, entitled The Net-Zero Carbon Challenge, and anyone wishing to hear the talk just needs to register on Eventbrite as it is free.

Professor Lunn MBE, FREng, FRSE, FICE, is the Royal Academy of Engineering and BAM Nuttall Research Chair in Biomineral Technologies for Ground Engineering at the University of Strathclyde.

According to the Saltire Society her research “focuses on the development of low carbon technologies to strengthen soils and to form injectable barriers to inhibit subsurface flow”.

They added: “She applies her research in civil engineering, nuclear decommissioning, nuclear waste disposal and geological carbon storage. She is an experienced advisor to government, was vice-chair of the Royal Society of Edinburgh’s Energy Enquiry, Scotland’s Energy Future, which reported in June 2019, and is a member of the National Engineering Policy Centre’s working group on net zero, focusing on sustainable construction and the built environment.”
