Alumni Festival: The Era of Global Risk

A panel discussion of the multiple overlapping challenges facing humanity in the 21st Century. A recently published overview of the emerging science of existential risk studies, The Era of Global Risk is edited by SJ Beard, Clarissa Rios Rojas, and Catherine Richards of the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk (CSER), with an introduction from Professor Martin Rees. The CSER team will take this publication as a starting point for exploring the complexity of living with global risk, as well as suggestions for developing the foresight and courage needed to bring that era to a close.
