Event description
RSA Scotland Angus Millar Lecture. Climate Change: Treading on Thin Ice

About this Event

We are delighted to invite you to the 2019 RSA Scotland Angus Millar Lecture, which will be delivered by Sandrine Dixson-Declѐve, Co-President of the Club of Rome and a respected senior advisor, facilitator and lecturer. The event will be chaired by Katherine Trebeck, Knowledge and Policy Lead for the Wellbeing Economy Alliance.

We are in the midst of a Planetary Emergency. Climate breakdown and mass extinction of species are converging with widespread socio-economic inequality and political radicalisation. The global system is now in dire need of systemic and transformational change. And yet, we have an unprecedented opportunity to emerge from emergency to a world of human and planetary well-being.

In this lecture, Sandrine Dixson-Decleve will explain The Club of Rome’s Climate and Planetary Emergency Plans response to this urgent call and how they will provide the key levers of change to secure the future of people and planet.

The Angus Millar Lecture, a key part of RSA Scotland’s annual event programme, is funded by the legacy of Angus Millar FRSA.

Doors open from 5.30pm. This event is open to Fellows and non Fellows
