The Global Futures events enable new thinking around big global challenges. They do this by bringing together people from different disciplines (science, politics, psychology, sociology, business, leadership, art etc) in an informal way for short presentations, followed by discussions and then chats over a drink. The first event was the book launch of The Burning Question, dealing head on with climate change and fossil fuels. Subsequent events have looked at inseparably related aspects of the sustainability challenge including ‘Waking up’, ‘The future of cities’, ‘Food Security‘ and ‘Economics in the Anthropocene’. The events are provocative and engaging, and are usually held quarterly from 4-6pm+, at the University. All welcome!
