Event description
HOW SCIENCE FICTION CAN INFLUENCE AND INSPIRE MILITARY THOUGHT AND TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENT

About this event

NATIONAL SECURITY & THE IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE

"Reading science fiction nurtures hope that there is a better future. While conflict, catastrophe, and climate change feature in many of these novels and movies, much science fiction is highly optimistic in nature… However, reading science fiction also allows us to consider a variety of negative potential futures… It is beneficial for military officers to read such descriptions of alternate futures; it is the first step in ensuring that they do not come to pass.” (‘Science Fiction and the Strategist 2.0’, Strategy Bridge, August 27, 2018)

CONVERGENCE SERIES SESSIONS

The aim of the evening is to enable creative collisions of researchers and practitioners from different disciplines, with the hope of fostering a community of practise that can take some of the ideas discussed on the night further, remembering that the DIP team are eager to hear of collaborative ideas and projects that we can help to develop.

The Convergence Series will start conversations that we hope will develop into convergent collaborations in the future.

Drinks vouchers distributed on arrival, food provided during the session.

Attendance is by invite and spaces are limited. Registrations close midday of the event.
