Our next study course starts TOMORROW – 21st April – at 7.30 pm in St Peter’s Church, Gustard Wood and runs for five weeks. It is based on the book ‘There Is No Planet B’ by Mike Berners-Lee. The book is introduced as follows:
Feeding the world, climate change, biodiversity, antibiotics, plastics, pandemics – the list of concerns seems endless. But what is most pressing, and what should we do first? Do we all need to become vegetarian? How can we fly in a low-carbon world? How can we take control of technology? And, given the global nature of the challenges we now face, what on Earth can any of us do, as individuals?
In the first session we will take an overview and ask what exactly is climate change and what are its implications. The next three sessions will look more closely at Food, Transport and Energy respectively. In the last session we shall look at the Christian perspective and what it means.
Each session will involve both presentations and discussion The sessions are open to all and prior knowledge is not required although it might be helpful to have a copy of the book and to have read the relevant sections in advance.
