Event Details

What emotions do you feel when you consider our future on a warming
planet? Are you paralysed by anxiety? Wracked with anger? Seized with hope? Do emotions like these stop us from thinking rationally about climate action, or are there times when emotion is just what we need to make us strive for a better world?

Join ethics researcher, emotion theorist and sometime climate activist Dr James Hutton and marine scientist Dr Sebastian Hennige for an exploration of the impacts of climate change on marine environments and a deep dive into the highs and lows of our emotional responses to the climate crisis. Including original poetry readings from Scottish Creative, Raymond Wilson, and hosted by Dr Hermione Cockburn, Scientific Director of Dynamic Earth.

Ticket includes a welcome drink on arrival.
