HOW TO AVERT ECOLOGICAL DISASTER — TALKING SOLUTIONS WITH BURNING FUTURES AT HAU1

HOW TO AVERT ECOLOGICAL DISASTER — TALKING SOLUTIONS WITH BURNING FUTURES AT HAU1

The climate crisis. Ecological collapse. Resource scarcity. It’s impossible now to look away and ignore the grave environmental threats we face. But at the heart of all this is a truth we’d rather brush under the carpet: it’s our constant drive for more and more economic growth that has brought us to this critical point. This fixation on growth and the toll it takes on the planet is the subject of what’s set to be an interesting and valuable discussion at HAU 1 on 21.01.2020: “Fossil Economies, Degrowth Ecologies“. As part of Hebbel am Ufer’s Burning Futures series of talks on ecology, this edition brings together Andreas Malm (author), Tadzio Müller (political scientist) and Andrea Vetter (researcher and journalist), three interdisciplinary climate thinkers on a mission to find out why our economy became so dependent on fossil fuels and how we can move towards a green-growth – or even growth-less – future. The talk offers a new way of looking at the climate crisis, and will leave you in no doubt about the drastic structural changes needed to avert disaster. Well worth your while we say.
