The bushfires last summer and then a global pandemic have shown us a glimpse of our future in a world beset by climate change and zoonotic diseases. Eco-anxiety and a fear for our future is a pretty normal response but can leave us paralysed and feeling helpless.
In this talk experiential futurist Claire Marshall will take you through how our brains think about the future, why it has been difficult for humans to take action on climate change and how we can reframe our eco-anxiety to take the action we need to.
Claire Marshall is an experiential futurist. Working with clients like WWF Australia and the City of Sydney, Claire designs experiences that help people think differently about the future. Her past work includes; the Museum of Futures, an exhibition of ‘future artefacts’ created with the City of Sydney; the Future Walk, an audio tour of two different futures created with WWF Australia and the Human Robot Friendship Ball created with the City of Canada Bay for the Vivid Ideas Festival. She is also the host of The WWF Greenhouse Sessions Podcast that looks at how we can leverage technology to save the planet.
Also speaking at this location at 6:00pm is Julien Pollack and Petr Matous.
