Climate change is often in the news. But just how bad are things really? And what can we do about it?
The planet is in ecological crisis. We are in the midst of the sixth mass extinction event this planet has experienced.
Scientists believe we may have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown. This is an unprecedented global emergency. Our children and our nation face grave risk.
Members of Extinction Rebellion Nottingham will share the latest climate science and talk about where our planet is heading. We will discuss some of the current psychology around climate change, and offer solutions through the study of social movements.
This talk includes discussion of worst case scenarios if urgen action is not taken, It is therefore recommended for a 16+ audience.
