How to think long-term in a short-term world

Facilitator: Roman Krznaric

Come and listen to a leading philosopher and best selling author who is always entertaining and engaging. His newly published book The Good Ancestor argues that the greatest challenge we face is not climate change, extreme inequality or terrorism: it is our inability to think long term.

Event time: Thu 15th Oct 2020 at 7:30pm - Thu 15th Oct 2020 at 9:30pm

Roman Krznaric is one of Britain’s leading social philosophers whose books, including Empathy, The Wonderbox and  How to Find Fulfilling Work, have been published in more than 20 languages. Roman’s writings have been widely influential amongst political and ecological campaigners, education reformers, social entrepreneurs and designers. This is his fourth visit to Hawkwood.

With examples from every corner of the world and thinkers both past a present who are forging new ways of creating the future, Roman offers seven practical, visionary ways we can make positive changes. By reframing our perspective we can ensure that we have a tangible impact on the world that future generations will inherit.

His talk will be followed by a question and answer session.

"... a timely, meaningful and heartening reminder that, if we put our minds to it, we can overcome what Roman rightly refers to as 'the tyranny of now',"

“The Good Ancestor is about taking our finger off the Buy Now button and thinking seriously about the legacies we want to leave to the citizens of tomorrow”
