Is the climate crisis simply too complex for any solution? There is a simpler way to look at the crisis and it points to a profound and far reaching solution!

Many thanks to Wolfpack Brewery who will be sponsoring the free beer for this event

There are many reasons why we are failing to rise to the challenge of the climate crisis, and the issues and solutions we hear on the news do not go to the core of the problem. You may be surprised to know that it is not only the obvious “bad guys” who are stopping us from taking the action we need to keep our home planet safe, protect our livelihoods and the people we care about.

This talk outlines simple ideas that can deliver the massive transformation needed to impact the climate crisis. Enabling all people to work towards what is an obvious shared goal, and creating opportunities for everyone. The talk will outline why these ideas need to start with a Global New Deal.

Sacha Meckler is an innovator and thought leader with over 19 years’ global leadership and innovation experience in cleantech, tech, organisational and system change. He currently holds executive and non-executive board roles in the UK and regularly speaks at and chairs conferences with cross cutting themes, challenging old paradigms to develop improved models and systems. He publishes work on a range of innovation subjects dealing with socio-technical and system change, from transformation of the energy sector to climate change policy.

The BSMT Urban Art gallery will host the talks as part of its two-part exhibition: DYSTOPIA and UTOPIA, in light of the climate crisis. The gallery and its art will be a platform to interrogate our warming world; the exhibitions will explore the possible futures we may encounter, embodying the zeitgeist we are all experiencing now. We will donate a percentage of all art sales to Extinction Rebellion in support of the brave work they are doing. More on the exhibition can be found here.

Speaker Sacha Meckler will be staying after his speech to discuss further with any of those interested. There will also be free beer provided by Wolfpack brewery for those who book for the event.
