<strong>July 3rd – All Change! What Will Climate Change Mean for our Future?</strong>

What might the world be like in 2100? What policies could get us to net zero carbon? What would life be like in a world of net zero carbon? We’ll do several activities to help us explore different aspects.

Organised and facilitated by Perry Walker from Talk Shop.

Everything needs to change to reverse climatic and ecological breakdown. So let’s think big. Richard Priestley presents some ideas about how tens of trillions of pounds/dollars/Euros might be raised and spent globally to maximize human wellbeing and ecological restoration. 20th to 27th September the ‘Schools Strike for Climate’ are planning a week of Global action and asking us adults to participate, and Extinction Rebellion are planning something big for October. Richard would love feedback on the ideas he’ll be presenting, and to hear what local groups are planning for the Autumn, and how we can collaborate to achieve maximum effect.

Following a previous enjoyable evening where we showed and discussed a selection of TED talks, we’ll do this again! At the start, we’ll collectively vote on which TED talks to watch from a list of possible titles with time for discussion between each. A great relaxing way to end the Summer session!
