This Funzing Experience:
What should we do about global warming? Everything.

How bad should we feel about it? Not at all.

We need to figure out how to "live" with what we know about ecological facts. Tim Morton argues that dominant approaches are way more of a hindrance than a help.

n this talk, we’ll explore how common ecological speech isn’t helping to generate ecological awareness, when it gets stuck in guilt mode: fixating on a painful recognition that one has done something wrong. This mode is inhibiting a more genuine ecological feeling, which has to do with what I’m going to call “responsibility.” We're going to explore just how weird and wild this seemingly tame notion of “responsibility” actually is.

Join leading eco-commentator, Professor Timothy Morton for an exclusive one-off talk, where - In his characteristic style - we will present some responses to global warming that are much... well, nicer.

Venue: Trapeze Bar, Shoreditch

Doors: 6.30pm / Talk starts: 7.00pm.

Funzing Talks is a new concept which aims to re-invent your after work drinks. We've pulled together an impressive array of leading entrepreneurs, intellectuals, bright thinkers and incredible individuals to inspire your evenings.

Held in a hand picked range of bars across London, a Funzing Talks event makes the perfect after work activity.

Delve into a totally new subject and challenge your perspectives over a beer with like-minded Londoners. Funzing has always encouraged you to do something different with your free time, so we say do just that - you never know where it may lead you!
