Description

*****Update: We have now run out of tickets. Please register to be added to the waiting list for any tickets that become available.

George Monbiot Lecture and Book Launch:

Out of the Wreckage - A New Politics for an Age of Crisis
Thursday 9 November
*** Doors open 6 pm. 6.30 pm (Prompt) Start ***
Admission Free. All welcome

A toxic ideology rules the world – of extreme competition and individualism. It misrepresents human nature, destroying hope and common purpose. Only a positive vision can replace it, a new story that re-engages people in politics and lights a path to a better world.

George Monbiot explains how new findings in psychology, neuroscience and evolutionary biology cast human nature in a radically different light: as the supreme altruists and cooperators. He shows how we can build on these findings to create a new politics: a ‘politics of belonging’. Both democracy and economic life can be radically reorganized from the bottom up, enabling us to take back control and overthrow the forces that have thwarted our ambitions for a better society. His new and thrilling vision provides the hope and clarity required to change the world.
