The Uncertain World: A Public Dialogue

Uncertain World
Sat 17 October 2015,

Hamilton House

Human activity has direct and indirect impacts on our climate, environment, life and society, and the more we reshape our planet the more uncertain our future becomes. In particular, our complex environment complicates forecasts of climate change and resource security. And this is particularly true when environmental complexity meets the equally profound complexity of our cities and society.

Through late 2014 and all of 2015, the Cabot Institute has been hosting lectures, workshops and other events that address understanding and thriving in this Uncertain World.

On 17 October, the focus will be on the citizens of Bristol: What aspects of environmental change seem most uncertain to you? Which of these are most concerning to you? Or are environmental concerns subordinate to more pressing issues such as your food and energy bills or changes in benefits? How do you imagine our society must adapt as our environment becomes more uncertain? How should uncertainty in climate forecasts inform policy and personal decisions? In short, what are your concerns and what are your reasons for optimism for living in this Uncertain World?

Rich Pancost, Director of the Cabot Institute, and Megan Blomfield, Lecturer in Environmental Ethics, will speak briefly about climate uncertainty and how it impacts issues of equality, but the goal of the day is to listen to you.
