We are rapidly reaching a point of no return in terms of climate change while environmental degradation continues apace. Yet humanity seems unable to make transformative changes in response to these growing ecological crises. A shift in mindsets is needed to reclaim the concept of nature that transcends the scientific or economic arguments that have so abjectly failed to make a real difference. Join us for an evening of poetry, polemic, performance and philosophy as we argue for an embodied and affective response to the natural world of which humanity is a part.
