Patterns of Change
The world we live in is changing – sometimes gradually, sometimes suddenly – as human activity and nature’s forces combine.
What are the patterns of environmental, social and technological change, across the globe and over time?
Researchers from the University of Bristol’s new Cabot Institute will highlight the changing world they study – from large-scale environmental trends in ice sheets and oceans, to social and economic patterns, and changes the built environment and its resilience to hazards.
Short, visually arresting talks will be interspersed with footage from the provocative films Koyaanisqatsi: Life Out of Balance and Powaqqatsi: Life in Transition, and followed by time for discussion with the audience.
