“Feeding the world, climate change, biodiversity, antibiotics, plastics – the list of concerns seems endless. But what is most pressing, what are the knock-on effects of our actions, and what should we do first? Do we all need to become vegetarian? How can we fly in a low-carbon world? Should we frack? How can we take control of technology? Does it all come down to population? And, given the global nature of the challenges we now face, what on Earth can any of us do?” Berners-Lee is an English researcher and writer on carbon footprint, currently the fellow of the Institute for Social Futures at Lancaster University. His books include How Bad are Bananas, The Burning Question and There is No Planet B, where he has researched into ways to live sustainably. In There is No Planet B, Berners-Lee has outlined the big-picture perspective on the environmental and economic challenges of the day, and traced through to the underlying roots – questions of how we live and think.

Free wine, soft drinks and vegan food will be provided – with a great opportunity for networking after the talk.

Accessibility Access: There are disabled toilets in the Winstanley lecture theatre, and is accessible via lift, with spaces in the lecture theatre for wheelchairs. Induction loops are also installed in the theatre.
