‘read, think, challenge, debate, refine, connect, inspire…’
So the world didn’t end in 2012 and we are facing a future of 8 billion people, over 2 degrees of warming, scarcer resources, and fragmented ecosystems. However humans are an ingenious and creative species so individuals, communities, businesses and governments should be capable of tackling these issues head on, and create a fairer and more sustainable future. What do you think the future holds? join the debate, join us at Green-Thinkers Bookclub either online or at our first meeting.
We are a small group of environmental and sustainability professionals who care about the future, want to delve into our subject more deeply, and discuss these issues with those from other walks of life and professions in an informal, non-technical way. No prior knowledge is necessary except for reading the book, and all views are welcome. Our first book is the thought provoking and provocative ‘God Species’ by Mark Lynas. “this is no depressing lamentation of eco-doom”
