      A Human Touch

      Wednesday 20 March–Wednesday 8 May

      This stunning large-scale open-air photography exhibition will feature in the landscaped garden area of Holyrood, and will take you on a fascinating journey exploring the effect of human activity on our planet; how modern practices are changing our landscapes and impacting on the environment, and looking at some of the steps taken to cope with a rapidly changing world and dwindling resources. Learn about the urgency of rapid environmental degradation and ways to make a difference.

      In association with Edinburgh Science.
