About the Speaker
With a BSc in Computer Science & a PgD in Forestry & Environmental Management, Mark is currently working freelance as a content creator and is building a brand called SilvaScienta. While content creation is a fun way to flex creativity and practice new skills, his ultimate goal is to master emerging technologies in order to facilitate ecological restoration projects worldwide; Drones are one avenue that will help to achieve this. Mark spends most of his free time volunteering for reforestation & rewilding NGOs, exploring in nature and doing online courses to acquire new skills.
Please note that this event has been rescheduled and will now take place on Thursday 3 June.
