The Extraordinary Story of Human Beings, Energy and Happiness

27 April 2017 - 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The Extraordinary Story of Human Beings, Energy and Happiness

‘The Extraordinary Story of Human Beings, Energy and Happiness’ is an inspirational multimedia presentation from Paul Allen, key thinker from the Centre for Alternative Technology and co-author of the recent research report ‘Zero Carbon Britain: Making it Happen’. Paul will be joined by composer pianist Lola Perrin playing performing her specially composed accompaniment to the Story.

The stories that we tell about our lives and the world that we live in are hugely important and few are bigger than the story of energy and happiness. First laid down 400 million years ago, fossil fuels have enabled human civilisation to transform fantastically but our overuse of them and the resultant climate change now conjures, for many, a dystopian ending to our relationship with coal, oil and gas.

The Extraordinary Story of Human Beings, Energy and Happiness challenges us to radically rethink our story so that we may tell a different one. One that will give us the confidence and imagination to visualise what a climate positive future might look like and nurture a sense of collective excitement about the future.

A free event.
