The Brunels changed the way we travelled forever. Marc Brunel designed the worlds first tunelling shield laying the foundation for future tunnelling projects like Js2, Crossrail and the Channel tunnel. His son, Isambard Kingdom Brunel who learnt his craft on the Thames Tunnel project designed train lines that continue to cross cross the country today, and imagined a train that would take you from London to New York.
Today we need to fundamentally change the way we travel once more to tackle the worst effects of climate disaster.
Join Stay Grounded for an interactive workshop on the links between aviation and climate justice, to find out what you could do for people and planet.
About the event
The workshop will last around 1 hour.
The event will be taking place in the Tunnel Shaft. Please note that there is a long flight of stairs to the bottom of the Tunnel Shaft. If you have additional access needs and cannot get to the bottom of the stairs, please let us know as soon as possible so we can make suitable arrangements. More details about our accessibility can be found here: Accessibility – Brunel Museum (thebrunelmuseum.com)
The Tunnel Shaft can be a bit cold, even in summer! If you run cold, you might want to consider bringing an extra layer or two.
Refreshments will not be served, but please feel free to bring snacks if you wish – just remember to take your recycling with you.
