The road we’re currently on leads only to destruction. Can we find a way to a better future nonetheless?
There is now armed conflict on every continent – most notably, full-scale war in Ukraine, Myanmar and Ethiopia. Gross inequality is increasing – according to Oxfam, since 2020 the richest 1% have pocketed $26 trillion in new wealth, almost twice as much as the rest of the world put together. Climate breakdown is accelerating, bringing ever closer the threat of irreversible catastrophe. Everywhere our relentless assault on the natural world seems to be intensifying.
Can we still find a way to a better future?
This event is sponsored by Bath & District UNA, Bath Stop War and Rethinking Security B&NES.
