Event description

Description

Earth is currently experiencing a mass extinction brought about by, … well, … us. Species are being lost at a rate similar to when the dinosaurs disappeared. But this time it’s not due to a massive asteroid hitting the Earth; species are being removed from the planet now because of human consumption of natural resources.

Is a societal collapse imminent, and do we need to prepare for a post-collapse society rather than attempt to avoid one? Or, can we limit the severity and onset of a collapse by introducing a few changes such as removing political donations, becoming vegetarians, or by reducing the number of children one has?

Contribute to the conversation led by Professor Corey Bradshaw, who’ll traverse the climate-change and extinction crisis that we find ourselves facing, and what we can do to help.

Professor Corey Bradshaw

Corey Bradshaw is the Matthew Flinders Fellow in Global Ecology at Flinders University where he heads the Flinders Modelling Node of the Centre of Excellence for Australian Biodiversity and Heritage. Corey’s raison d’être is to demonstrate to human society that we can no longer ignore the impacts of deforestation, pollution, disease, habitat loss, extinctions, over-grazing, over-fishing or warming climates on human wealth, health and wellbeing.
