RSA Watch: Is there still Hope on Climate Change?

In partnership with Hawkwood and Gloucestershire Climate Action Network (GlosCAN)

Thursday 7 September, 7.30pm – 9.30pm

Join us for an evening in the inspirational setting of Hawkwood,  Centre for Future Thinking. At this event you can meet and watch RSA talks together and discuss the ideas and concepts raised. We call this “social watching”.

We’ll watch a video from the RSA lecture series on youtube. This time, the theme is “is there still hope in climate change” – we want to look beyond the science and get to the core of the human response to climate change.

The RSA lecture ‘Is there still Hope on Climate Change’ is with David Attenborough in discussion with Tim Flannery where they discuss various themes including how close is the great climate crisis? Can our desire to overcome it drive humanity’s next great waves of positive technological, economic, and social revolution? Or will we be plunged into the dystopian collapses and terrors of civilisations past?  Find out more about the lecture on the RSA website.

We’ll follow up the film with a facilitated discussion, chaired by Hugh Richards of GlosCAN.

Book your place now. Tickets are free and refreshments will be provided.
