Climate change is arguably the most serious threat to humanity that we face—a real phenomenon which could change our planet forever and visit upon us weather changes and events of biblical proportions. So why do we largely ignore it by living in a numbed state of perpetual cognitive dissonance?
As many despair in the absence of any real leadership or political will to instigate required changes what can be done? It is little wonder that psychological effects such as eco anxiety and climate depression are becoming more commonplace.
This symposium seeks to explore how creative and often misunderstood apocalyptic philosophy can make sense of, and is present in, our contemporary reality; and how it can interpret how we got here and what can be done.
