The crisis of consumerism
Covid has been the all-consuming topic of 2020. As we emerge from the pandemic, we will have a unique opportunity to reflect on how consumerism itself is at the heart of all our global crises.
It is essential that this issue is not lost in the ‘fog of war’ over Covid and party politics. It is not enough to resume ‘business as usual’ in the face of growing evidence that we must tackle global heating.
Addressing what and how much we consume is an urgent priority for individuals, corporations and governments in our response to the crisis of consumerism that threatens the planet.
Join George Monbiot on a live stream including a talk and interactive Q&A with the audience, music from Mobius Loop, singing from Tallulah Rendall, an animation from TreeSisters and a talk from author, speaker and facilitator Mac Macartney.
