“While out there the fiction rages, we are gathering to write ourselves a new reality…”

Join METIS’ artistic director Zoë Svendsen in conversation with a researcher on the climate crisis. They will discuss possible alternatives and solutions for a more liveable world, from social and economic change to ways to improve health and inequality.

Listen to their perspectives, then ask questions and share your own thoughts and ideas for creating a world we want to live in.

This conversation is part of METIS’s residency at Wellcome Collection.

Zoë will be in conversation with different people at each event:

  • 22 April she will be joined by Dr Rosemary Green who is researching the relationship between diets, the environment and health.
  • 28 April she will be joined by climate change expert Professor Dominic Kniveton.
