The RSGS Stirling Group was established in 1990; Ron Livingstone gave the first public talk, entitled Falkland Islands. And since then, they've heard from Stephen Venables, John Blashford-Snell and Rosie Swale Pope. There are now six RSGS Inspiring People talks in Stirling each year.

Events in Stirling

The Stirling Inspiring People talks are given on Wednesday evenings at 7.30pm, and most talks are held at the University of Stirling. However, please check individual event listings for any changes.
