Charles Darwin Symposium a wonderful success29 September 2009
Last week’s Symposium titled Charles Darwin: Shaping our Science, Society and Future was a huge success. Over 500 delegates took the opportunity to listen, discuss and debate Darwin’s theories with an exciting range of renowned speakers from around the globe.
The Symposium was the culmination of our Darwin200 year activities in which we honour Charles Darwin, the man, the scientist, a critical thinker and an examiner of his world.
2009 marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin, 150th anniversary of his work On the Origin of Species and 170 yearssince the HMS Beagle sailed into Darwin Harbour.
The Symposium was a wonderful illustration of the continued collaboration and partnership between the Northern Territory and the Charles Darwin University.
