Climate Utopias and Dystopias
New Ways of Thinking about the Future
Sat 21 May 2016, 12:15-13:45
Watershed
Free, but booking required

Climate change may displace upward of 150 million people during the twenty-first century, and floods and droughts will ravage many parts of the world. At the same time, human beings are notoriously unable to consider and plan for the future. But the Paris agreement on climate change has ushered in a new era of willingness to tackle climate change, and new technologies and ways of thinking about the future are emerging. Stephan Lewandowsky, Mike Page and Chris Goodall examine the challenges and the opportunities that await us.

Part of Creating Real Utopias in the 21st Century, a two-day festival in association with the University of Bristol’s Anticipation Research Group. Supported by the AHRC Connected Communities Programme, the University of Bristol Brigstow Institute and the Cabot Institute.

 

Prebooking is required. You need to show your ticket at the door.

 

We have restricted the number of tickets that can be booked to one per transaction. This has been introduced in an effort to stop people automatically booking multiple tickets without confirming if they have guests to go with them. We hope this will help to limit the number of 'no shows' at the events, which currently run at around 35% of bookings. We will monitor the situation. If you need more than one ticket, you can click on the booking link again. The little extra effort involved will hopefully put off those who don’t really need more than one, but not those who do.

 

Please ensure you use the correct email address. This is where your ticket will be sent. If you do not provide the correct address, you will not receive the acknowledgement email or ticket.
