A distraction or an essential discussion? Confronting extreme environmental risks

Monday 7 March: 7:30pm - 8:30pm

Mill Lane Lecture Rooms , 8 Mill Lane, CB2 1RW

Environmental risks such as climate change, biodiversity loss, and threats to food security may have catastrophic impacts. Rigorous assessment must include plausible but extreme risks, even if they seem remote. But do these scenarios invite sensationalism or fear fatigue, or are they crucial to the global discussion about our future?

An expert panel will explore different perspectives on risk in the face of uncertainties, unknowns, and the possibilities of extreme outcomes.

This event is being co-hosted by the Cambridge Forum for Sustainability and the Environment (CFSE) and the Centre for Existential Risk (CSER).
