I have been teaching Philosophy to students aged 15-18 for over 20 years. Now my understanding is public.
In 2012, I founded the Climate Academy. Young people need a informed, safe and creative space to respond to the crisis.
Cut carbon emissions. Here's the science, put together by the experts Birgit van Munster and Michael Wadleigh.
"Join the dialogue
we so urgently need."
HG Wells once commented, "Civilisation is a race between education and catastrophe".
We all need to enter into a genuine dialogue with ourselves, the past and what science emphatically describes as a dangerous and compromised future.
Let's start the dialogue together.
Time for another European Renaissance?
Things cannot go on as they are now. We cannot afford to “restore the economy” to the old status quo. Our standard economic ambitions have become totally incompatible with a healthy climate and the natural limits of the planet.
The crisis is now.
Now; not in five or ten years or an even longer term.
Democracies urgently need a revive their respect for truth and virtues. We have overcome tragic situations before and we can do it again.
Systemic problems need systemic solutions. Philosophy asks the big questions and the deep questions.
It is uniquely capable of identifying the connections between things… most importantly for climate change, the connections between the mind and the heart.
