Gresham Coll: What Do We Owe To Those Not Yet Born
Tue 13 Apr 2021 at 18:00 to 19:00  
Register on Gresham web site

Gresham College's 130 annual lectures and events are free and open to all. The College has been recording its lectures since the 1980s and we live stream all lectures for those unable to attend in person. There are now over 2,000 lectures freely available online on this website and on YouTube.

SUMMARY

Climate change and the over-exploitation of resources now may mean that unless the current generation modifies its behaviour, generations ahead may either not be born or will inherit a world with severe problems. A village or even a nation state can develop rules to prevent depletion of resources so that it does not cut down forests or over-fish the oceans. 

But how can that be done globally when the action of one country can have a harmful effect on another?
