This year, Nature celebrates its 150th anniversary. As part of this I was lucky enough to be invited to give a public lecture at the University of Dunedin in New Zealand, which was also marking its 150th anniversary.
The university was hosting the 1869 Conference and Heritage festival, focused on an era when sciences and humanities were flourishing. It was a real honour to be part of this festival. I spoke about Nature at 150: Past, present and future of a science journal.
Two months later, I also spoke about Nature‘s history at an event to mark our anniversary in Beijing, which was attended by around 200 Wechat followers, scientists and science stakeholders. These are a couple of pictures from a really rewarding day.
