How Should Global Catastrophic Risks be Managed?
This event will discuss innovative ways in which the international community might tackle catastrophic risks to civilisation such as climate change, food & water security, nuclear war, bio-terrorism, disease, epidemic and antimicrobial resistance.
Have recent multinational efforts to tackle climate change, international conflicts and virus outbreaks provided hope for the ability of global governance to tackle civilisation’s greatest challenges? Or do such attempts at collaboration simply serve to highlight that our systems of international governance are not built to unite humanity to solve its greatest existential challenges?
This event will be followed by a reception.
