Edinburgh's March event took place at the University of Edinburgh's Inspace research center and was focused on the Future. PKN Edinburgh Vol. 22 saw biologists, solar energy researchers, economists, artists, and city planners talk on infrastructure and society to come. 

Photographer Chris Scott captured numerous photos from the grand event, and has a slideshow of them up on his Flickr account.
