Professor Paul Ehrlich and Professor Graham Pyke tackle the urgent imperative to pursue sustainability and how we might do this. This lecture compares the past, our current approaches and what we should be doing to ensure the environmental security of future generations.

Explore how socio, political and economic impacts have shaped our attitudes and thoughts on how humanity might achieve sustainability through more ethical conduct. Discover the importance of educating, motivating and creating an open dialogue about sustainability issues to help direct humanity toward a sustainable society before it’s too late.

We owe it to ourselves, our children, grandchildren, and subsequent generations, to pursue sustainability for humanity.
