Professor Benjamin Horton invited speaker at Singapore’s ArtScience Museum

29 Nov 2017

Singapore ArtScience Museum strives to highlight creative processes at the heart of art and science, their roles in shaping society and influence the world we live in. Their latest in a long row of internationally renowned exhibitions is Treasures of the Natural World from the Natural History Museum in London.

For the opening conference of this exhibition on Saturday 25 November, the museum had invited Professor Benjamin Horton to speak of his research on sea-level change.

Professor Horton looks at mechanisms that have determined sea-level changes in the past, to predict changes in the future. His research impacts upon important ethical, social, economic and political problems facing coastal regions; topics that many people begin to realise societies will have to deal with as we face a changing climate. Among the other speakers were the Director of Research and Conservation at Singapore Botanic Gardens and the Lead Interpretation Officer of Treasures of the Natural World Exhibition at Natural History Museum, London.
