Symposium: Adapt / Modify

Symposium

Ticketed

Saturday 30 September 2017

10:00-18:00

Our interaction with nature is full of adaptations and modifications, from how we manipulate the world around us to the evolutionary process itself. But how should we adapt to the environmental challenges we face today? Is there anything ‘natural’ that hasn’t already been modified by us? What modifications should we make, who will they benefit and who should be responsible for those changes?

Join us for a day of in-depth discussion - with perspectives from history, contemporary science and society - as we approach the end of our year-long exploration into our relationship with nature.

This is a paid event with lunch and refreshments included. £25 full price/£20 concession. Tickets will become available below from 11:00 on Friday 28 July.
