Sir David Attenborough is to give an impassioned speech urging governments to take immediate action on climate change in Edinburgh next year.
The naturalist and broadcaster will address charity workers at Edinburgh University’s McEwan Hall on March 11.
His speech comes after a year of global protests surrounding government inaction on climate change and perils to biodiversity.
He will be the guest of honour at the People’s Postcode Lottery annual charity gala in the capital.
Last year, George and Amal Clooney attended the event, receiving a Postcode Hero award in recognition of their work to protect human rights.
Clara Govier, managing director at the People’s Postcode Lottery, said: “Over the decades, Sir David has inspired generations of us to safeguard biodiversity and protect the planet.
“We are delighted he will be joining us in Edinburgh early next year, Sir David’s message is more important than ever.”
