A Generation to Cool the Earth

Human-driven global warming is now widely accepted by society, and a recent survey suggests that it is one of the top three priorities for UK citizens. Whether we encounter extreme or unseasonal weather ourselves, see news of international disasters or endure personal experiences of year-on-year difference, awareness of climate change grew exponentially during 2019. Awareness leads to concern and worry, but can worry alone generate an adequate response?

A Generation to Cool the Earth brings together world-renowned expertise to convey what can and must be done to alleviate the current path our planet is on – a path described by the UN as “catastrophic” and “nearing the point of no return”.

Our speakers are guaranteed to challenge the most ardent of sceptics, reinvigorate the most committed environmentalists and inspire everyone in between to re-evaluate their perceptions, viewpoints, and daily habits. In seeking to go beyond an exploration of the causes and impacts of climate change, the day will provide stimulation for individual reflection. By providing different outlooks and viewpoints on what needs to be done, the sessions aim to provide real hope that things can be different - and show us how to bring about this much-needed change.

Also see Mandy Barker’s Altered Oceans project, which will bring an exhibition of eye-catching and ethereal images of our seas, defiled by plastic, and each speaker’s talk will expand on their specific areas of concern and expertise, aiming to provide real hope that things can be different - and, most importantly, show us how we can help to make them so
