Population Footprints: 21st Century challenges - Addressing population, development and climate change
UCL Darwin Lecture Theatre |
access via Malet Place | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom
Professor Mark Maslin, Head of UCL Geography
Climate change and poverty alleviation are two major interlinked challenges for the 21st century. To address these challenges it is important to understand the interaction between the ‘Population’, ‘Development’ and ‘Climate Change’ debates. UCL’s Prof. Mark Maslin will examine key issues and events from these three separate perspectives and recent cross-cutting debates which range from catastrophic visions of conflict and scarcity to optimistic views of a technological solution.
Instead of repeating historical perspectives about population growth damaging economic growth, the discussion will offer a more inclusive South-North engagement that may enable the current debates to be re-framed around common themes including sustainable cities and intercultural interaction, which naturally bring together a wide range of academic disciplines to find joint solutions for human wellbeing and global health.
