Mr Human spent 20 years teaching humanities in Kenya, Papua New Guinea and England, 20 years working for Oxfam, and 15 as a Fairtrade campaigner.

Now involved with Sustainable Keswick, his efforts focus on telling the stories of people on the frontline of climate change.

Topics will include rising sea-levsl, hurricans and droughts, and how these force millions to migrate, before looking at how those same consequences can affect us all.

The talk starts at 2pm, with tickets costing £2, which are available by scanning the code above or by calling 01539 713524.
