I am thrilled to be speaking next week at the Royal Museums Greenwich for this evening lecture alongside the brilliant Farhana Yamin.

Space Ethics and Planetary Care

From the website:

Apollo’s Earthrise image enabled us to see our fragile Earth floating in space. Over the next 50 years we are poised to explore, exploit and colonise our cosmos. This talk, the fourth in the series, seeks to address how we can learn to live as a global community within our - and other - planetary means.

The evening comprises a discussion between Dr Jill Stuart, expert in the politics, ethics and law of outer space exploration and exploitation, and Farhana Yamin, a leading international environmental lawyer, climate change and development policy expert and Extinction Rebellion activist. The panel and audience discussion will be chaired by Aluna’s artist Laura Williams.

Doors open at 5.30pm. Discussion begins at 6pm.
