We held the Cambridge Conference on Catastrophic Risk '2020 Hindsight: Our Final Century Revisited’ (CCCR 2020) - our third major international conference - over 16-19 November 2020. The sessions featured live drawing from Tom McLean 

Our 2020 conference drew on key themes from Lord Martin Rees’ seminal 2003 book Our Final Century, and reflected on the growth and development of the field of global catastrophic risk research over the last decades. CCCR2020 is one of the few forums in the world discussing such issues. We hope the conference contributed to the further development of the community working on global risks, and its engagement with other relevant groups.
