Scientists’ warning to humanity - climate change, ecosystem collapse and unsustainable global politics

07Nov2018 16:00 - 17:30

Lecture

We are aggressively violating the limits of Earth in the pursuit of financial wealth to maintain economic growth at all costs, even threatening life itself. Despite greater public awareness of the dangers, our leaders do not heed the urgency of the scientists’ warnings and instead pursue ‘wealth’ rather than ‘well-being’.

This presentation will explore the dysfunctional ‘operating system’ of global society. The hope of future generations depends upon remedial action. Thus far, societal response to the warnings issued by scientists and spiritual leaders has been inadequate for the task at hand. The human-induced ecological stressors will be discussed in light of our collective blindness to the existential threats and the urgency of action before collapse becomes inevitable.

Speaker:

Stuart Scott is an internationally acclaimed public speaker. He has founded numerous strategic initiatives, all aimed at moving society towards recognition and real, meaningful action to alter our current disastrous trajectory.
