Earth Day Conference

Post-apocalyptic films and books are more popular than ever, with recent titles like The Hunger Games, Oryx and Crake, The Day After Tomorrow and The Walking Dead joining a rapidly growing list. What drives our fascination with the end of the world? Can this pop-culture phenomenon help us understand today's environmental challenges and stimulate ideas to build a just, secure and sustainable future?

"Hope and Renewal in the Age of Apocalypse" features an exciting line-up of provocative authors, leading thinkers and creative problem solvers to explore these questions. Join us for a day of fresh ideas about climate change, wildlife conservation, economic growth, social justice and other challenges that drive our anxieties and test our resolve.
