Can geography help us avert catastrophe?
Last year, I read Danny Dorling and Carl Lee’s book "Geography" and saw Kate Tempest live in London.
Then Brexit and Trump happened.
This got me thinking and I decided to organise a Geography Festival to bring together inspiring people to highlight the importance of geography in creating a better future.
This one day festival will inspire a generation of geographers.
The programme for the day includes:
- 2 lectures by prominent academics outlining possible sources of catastrophe
- a panel discussion about the role of geography in the 21st century
- workshops run by "activist" organisations to provide you with the skills to change the world
We'll celebrate the end of the day with live music from a suitably political musician.
