Adventures in the Anthropecene - talk in Sydenham
Tomorrow night (Wednesday 27th January 2016, 7:30 pm), Gaia Vince - author of Adventures in the Anthropocene - is giving a reading at Sydenham's fine Kirkdale Books. The book, which won the 2015
Royal Society Winton Prize for Science Books, looks at 'Growing evidence from around the globe... that we are living in a permanently changed world; a new geological age defined by the activities and industry of our own species. Scientists call this the Anthropocene: the Age of Humans. What can we do to ensure that humanity can survive and thrive in this new age? Gaia Vince has travelled the world to see just how people at the sharp end of these changes are developing new strategies for survival. The result is a book whose message is positive – we aren’t necessarily doomed, but we need to rethink our relationship with the biosphere'.
'Gaia will be reading from the book and will be happy to sign copies after the event. (Reserve a signed copy if you can’t make it.)'. Tickets: £3.00 (redeemable against book) should be reserved in advance via: firstname.lastname@example.org
