Event details

There is an increasing amount of evidence that suggests that these questions are not preposterous. In fact, there are very good reasons to conclude that the next few decades will determine whether the tremendous improvements in longevity and wellbeing that characterise the past couple of centuries continue, halt or undergo a dramatic reversal.

In this talk I will give an overview of population trends, climate change, biodiversity loss, food and energy security and explain how these challenges are interacting in ways that produce a set of global challenges. I will suggest how these challenges could be met. Some of these suggestions may be controversial.
