Bath University Public Lecture: The World We’ll Leave Behind: grasping the sustainability challenge

Tue 20 Feb 2018 @ 4:45 pm - 5:30 pm

I-SEE Seminar

‘The World We’ll Leave Behind: grasping the sustainability challenge’

Professor William Scott, Emeritus Professor of Education, University of Bath | Dr Paul Vare, University of Gloucestershire

Abstract: It is now clear that human activity has influenced how the biosphere supports life on Earth, and given rise to a set of connected environmental and social problems. The core dilemma of our time is: How can we all live well, now and in the future, without compromising the ability of the planet to enable us all to live well?

This talk is about a new book which identifies the main issues and challenges we now face, explains the ideas that underpin them and their inter-connection, and discusses a range of strategies through which they might be addressed and possibly resolved. The talk will explore the challenges of such a writing project if the contents are to be both accessible and authoritative.
