Zoë Svendsen (director of World Factory, HOME, December 2016) is now investigating alternative economics and our relationship to climate change. To do so, she is interviewing experts all over the UK – and you are invited to join the conversation. The evening will begin with a structured interview, and evolve into a conversation.
On the 17th March, Zoë Svendsen will be in conversation about the future of global production networks with Ross Jones, of Manchester University’s sustainability forum, the Living Lab .
Zoë will be asking the question:
What is the best possible economic structure for responding to climate change?
& what would it be like to live in this future system?
Exploring climate change scenarios is not only about the changed landscape and atmospheric conditions of those situations, but also invites the question ‘how to live’ and brings with it the opportunity to ask the question ‘how do we want to live’?
