The social science of climate change communication provides insights into what effective communications could look like during the current crisis.

Averting the Insect Apocalypse

Video

Thu 21st May 7.30pm

Watch the video now. Live Q&A on Zoom.

Prof. Dave Goulson

We are in the midst of the 6th mass extinction event, with extinctions occurring faster than at any time in the last 65 million years. ‘Bioabundance’ is in decline, with recent studies showing that insects in particular seem to be disappearing fast. If it continues, this will have profound consequences for mankind and for our planet. Dave Goulson will explain why insects are decline, and suggest how we should tackle this crisis, first by turning our gardens into oases for life, and second by fundamentally changing the way we grow food.

YouTube video and link to Zoom Q&A can be found here.
