Portrait of the author

What happens when a leading New Zealand scientist (and frequent traveller) rules out flying for a year?

In the last two weeks of November, Shaun Hendy will travel around New Zealand by train, ferry and bus to deliver five public talks in connection with his recently published BWB Text, #NoFly: Walking The Talk on Climate Change – an honest account of one person’s attempt ‘to adapt’ in the face of growing climate anxiety.

Join Shaun Hendy at the Palmerston North City Library, where he will be interviewing Distinguished Professor Robert McLachlan about Massey University’s zero carbon pledge – the last public talk and discussion of Shaun’s six-stop, national #NoFly tour.
