Philosophy Café November/ In association with Sea Change
This month’s Café will be held on 11th November 7:30pm as part of the SeaChange exhibition being held at The Gate.
Discussions will be based on Climate Change, one of the greatest challenges facing our society. As part of the UN Convention on Climate Change and the ESRC: Economic and Social Research Council, the Sea Change project draws on social science research at Cardiff University to explore visualizations of this important issue. Fusing together art and science, an interactive exhibition created by Merryn Thomas uses images and interviews to explore representations of sea-level change on the Severn Estuary.
Participants will then be invited to explore issues drawn from the exhibition. A presentation from the project team will be followed by small-group discussions, exploring the meaning of climate change for us here and now, and how our perceptions of climate change here in Wales relate us to processes of environmental change happening elsewhere in the world and to the future.
