Event Details

Earth is currently experiencing a mass extinction brought about by, … well, … us. Species are being lost at a rate similar to when the dinosaurs disappeared. But this time it’s not due to a massive asteroid hitting the Earth; species are being removed from the planet now because of human consumption of natural resources.

Is a societal collapse imminent, and do we need to prepare for a post-collapse society rather than attempt to avoid one? Or, can we limit the severity and onset of a collapse by introducing a few changes such as removing government political donations, becoming vegetarians, or by reducing the number of children one has?

Contribute to the conversation led by Professor Corey Bradshaw, who’ll traverse the climate-change and extinction crisis that we find ourselves facing, and what we can do to help

 

Concluding the lecture will be a panel discussion moderated by Professor Alistair Rendell. Speakers to be announced soon!
