Location: Rhodes Lecture Theatre
This year marked the arrival of 7 billion people, ongoing globalization, accelerating technological change and rising expectations. While millions have emerged from poverty, the “tragedy of the commons” now hits at the planetary level. Climate change, water mismanagement, pandemics, and nuclear proliferation all undermine global public good, demanding collective action. Yet the global political economic system has yet to deliver solutions that work. This session will discuss commonalities across these threats, consider innovative ways to tackle them and explore implications for work on the ground.
