About the event

Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859) was an intrepid explorer and the most famous scientist of his age. His life was packed with adventure and discovery, but his most revolutionary idea was as a pioneering environmentalist – his radical vision of nature as a complex and interconnected global force that does not exist for the use of humankind alone. He was also the father of infographics - the first scientist to present complex scientific data in a visual way. To celebrate his 250th birthday join the award–winning author of ‘The Invention of Nature’ Andrea Wulf as she tells his story from a completely new perspective, revealing a man who was not only the most famous scientist of his time, but who also believed that the arts and sciences were intrinsically connected.
