Heading for Extinction? Two Very Different Responses
Speakers: Dan Ritman & Ros Bedlow
The planet is in ecological crisis: we are in the midst of a sixth mass extinction event this planet has experienced. Scientists believe we might have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown. This is an emergency. How do we propose to deal with it? We feature two speakers: Extinction Rebellion and the Transition movement. XR will share the latest climate science on where our planet is heading, discuss some of the current psychology about climate change and offer solutions through the study of social movements. Transition Leytonstone has been working on local solutions to the climate change issues for the past ten years and is now creating an action plan for the next ten.
