HOW TO SURVIVE CLIMATE CHANGE

GAIA VINCE IN CONVERSATION WITH KIRSTY LANG
SAMSTAG, 28.09. 2024 / 11h00

AKADEMIE DER BILDENDEN KÜNSTE WIEN, SITZUNGSSAAL

In her award-winning book, Adventures in the Anthropocene, science writer GAIA VINCE explains how humans have created a new geological epoch. For her much-anticipated follow-up, Nomad Century, Vince describes the concrete impact that the Anthropocene will have on our lives. In particular, she explains how climate change will render large swathes of the world uninhabitable and what this will mean for the further mass migration of populations (hint—Scotland might be a good place for long-term property investments). In conversation with BBC's KIRSTY LANG, Vince will propose concrete measures that humans can implement to manage the consequences of immense environmental and climatic change.

GAIA VINCE is a science writer and broadcaster exploring the interplay between human systems and the planetary environment. She is an honorary senior research fellow at the Anthropocene Institute at UCL and a host of BBC Inside Science. Her first book, Adventures in the Anthropocene (Milkweed Editions, 2014), won the Royal Society Science Book of the Year Prize. Her latest book, Nomad Century: How to Survive the Climate Upheaval (Penguin Books, 2022), explores global migration and planetary restoration in a radical call to arms.
