Event Overview

As public awareness of our influence on the environment grows, so too do activist movements look to influence the future (e.g. Global School Strikes, Extinction Rebellion). However, in order to understand the risks of future environmental change it is important to look at the past. We will explore how geographies of heritage looks to the past to help us understand present change and imagine future possibilities for our environment. This not only includes what the environment might look like but also who will most be affected.

We will see how we can use storytelling to understand loss, justice and hope in the face of global environmental change.

This session will last around 60 minutes, with plenty of time for audience questions.
