Welcome to the Inaugural lecture with Professor Aled Jones - ‘Apocalypse: An Update’. We hope you enjoy and if you have any questions, please ask and Aled will reply in the comment section once the livestream has finished. #ARULive About the lecture: The world faces increasing pressures from social exclusion, inequality, environmental degradation, loss of biodiversity and climate change. Projecting these trends forwards and a cascade of risks that we face over the next few decades could easily trigger economic, environmental and social collapse. How do these trends link together and reinforce each other? What types of cascading risks could really damage our societies first? However, the flip side of these risks represent significant opportunities for us to address these challenges and unlock an energy and financial transition to a more prosperous future. Join us live as Aled discusses the future of our planet.
