Part of Ventnor Fringe Festival 2021


The planet is in ecological crisis: we are in the midst of the sixth mass extinction event this planet has experienced. Scientists believe we may have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown. This is an emergency.

Speakers from Extinction Rebellion IOW will share the latest climate science on where our planet is heading, discuss some of the psychology around climate change and the contribution that social movements can make to accelerate positive change.

Everyone is welcome and there will be time to ask questions and discuss afterwards.
