Upcoming Beatty Lecture

 2019 Beatty Lecture - Dr. Jane Goodall

Dr. Jane Goodall, one of the world’s most influential and beloved advocates for nature conservation, will deliver the 2019 Beatty Lecture at McGill University on Thursday, September 26, from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm. Tickets for alumni, students and the public will go on sale on August 15 at noon through an online ticket system that will be linked to from this website’s homepage. The ticket price is $10 per person.

Forty years after her first Beatty lecture in 1979, Dr. Goodall returns to talk about the critical need for environmental stewardship and the power each individual has to bring about change. In the history of the Beatty Lecture, Dr. Goodall is the only lecturer who has been invited to speak under the Beatty banner a second time.
