Event Details

Christiana Figueres, top climate change diplomat for the UN, and her political strategist Tom Rivett-Carnac, will be talking about their new book, The Future We Choose: Surviving the Climate Crisis.

Climate destruction is everyday more evident. The planet is burning and the ice caps are receding at an alarming rate. 11,000 scientists have warned of “untold suffering” and significant changes to global society. Those from poorer countries are at risk of monumental displacement as temperatures soar and sea levels rise. Is there hope for change? Can our race reasonably survive - or, better, overcome - the crisis?

In their timely and essential new book, Figueres and Rivett-Carnac make a passionate call to arms, urging immediate action from us all. Together, they outline the two possible scenarios for our future: what our planet will look like if we fail to meet the Paris climate targets; and how it will look and feel to live in a carbon neutral world. Perhaps most essentially, they unite determination with optimism to present an empowering guide for us all to make the differences that matter.

They will be in conversation with Guardian environment editor, Damian Carrington.

Tickets for this event cost £20 or £30 with a copy of The Future We Choose (RRP £12.99).

Running time: 90 minutes, no interval.
