The Uncertain World: Question Time

Uncertain World
Wed 21 October 2015,

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.

Hear from those who help shape public opinion, provide advice to decision makers, or make decisions themselves in this increasingly Uncertain World. Members of the panel include:

George Ferguson, Mayor of Bristol
Thanushan Jeyarajah, Bristol Youth Mayor
Claire Craig, Director of the Government Office of Science
Leo Hickman, Carbon Brief and former Guardian journalist
Peter Macfadyen, former advisor to Comic Relief and former Mayor of Frome, a leader in the Transition Town movement.

The event will be chaired by Andrew Kelly, Bristol Festival of Ideas.

You can submit questions to the panel in advance through Eventbrite, or by emailing cabot-enquiries@bristol.ac.uk
There is no limit to the number of questions you can submit, but please keep your questions short.
