Today I had the pleasure of being presented to Prince Philip at the Senate House in Cambridge. He was visiting to celebrate the launch of the Conservation Campus in Cambridge. He looked extremely well for his age and was chatty.
The Cambridge Conservation cluster is the biggest in the world and has a great history. Darwin, a hero of mine, studied here and set the scene for things to come.
David Attenborough was the guest speaker. He took us back in time and painted a wonderful word picture about the importance of conservation. A very charismatic speaker, full of passion and a unique perspective on life.
We also heard some great speeches from four of the campus students who are studying for a masters degree.
