Global Futures events enable new thinking around big global challenges. Join the discussion on New Reality, New Thinking, New Tools.

Carbon emission continue to arise unabated. Current approaches to sustainability are failing for good reason – they are still for the most part rooted in reductionistic thinking. What might be the new thinking and new tools which might embody the paradigm shift we need?Pooran Desai, OBE HonFRIBA, CEO Oneplanet.com and Co-founder Bioregional.A drinks reception will take place following the seminar for further discussion (approx 17:30)
